About Us

Friesian Marketplace is located at Upstate Equestrian Center in the beautiful rolling hills of Greer, SC. With over 28 years of experience and multiple national and world championship titles, Cheryl Baird is the head trainer at Friesian Marketplace.  We have a wonderful friendly staff with over 20 years of experience. 


We are passionate about the Friesian breed. Their temperament, character, and willingness to work, makes the Friesian a wise choice. They are wonderful for children and adults alike, and their versatility makes them the perfect horse for riding, driving, trail riding and competing at the World Championships! We stand behind all of our horses. Our reputation for having the best customer service, quality of care for our horses, and overall customer satisfaction is very important to us. 


We look for superb bloodlines, work ethic, excellent conformation, movement, and most of all good character in all of our horses.  We cater to all disciplines and keep a variety of Friesians in our facility that are suited for dressage, saddleseat, driving, western, and trail.  Our expertise lies in our experience in training and teaching to fit the temperament of the horse with the rider and their discipline. Our proof is in our record, with happy customers and many champions.    


Working with these amazing horses is truly a blessing. We love what we do and our business is our passion. Our business standards are: “Quality, Commitment and Integrity,” catering to our customers, running a top quality organization, and having solid values.  We have customers from all over the US visit our beautiful horses and facility.
