We are SO excited to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to own some extraordinary horses. FMP is proud to present Arthur, Archie and Armando. These horses were part of a group called “The Apassionata” which is a European show that demonstrates the magical encounters between horse and man. Apassionata is an incredible performance which combines an artistic performance of various horse breeds (including the magnificent Friesians) with music, light compositions, set designs and live performances by dancers. The Apassionata showcases not only the beautiful movement, presence and advanced performances of the Friesian breed, it also demonstrates the unbelievable bond that horses can have with their humans. These horses were not only trained for 3rd and even 4th level dressage, but also trick trained to Spanish walk (both under saddle and on the ground), passage and piaffe, and even some to stand on their hind legs and walk on two legs while the trainer is directing them on the ground, and to bow. The horses used in Apassionata had to be smart, teachable, willing and magnificent, and that is what we have found in Arthur, Archie and Armando. They are truly stars of the show and will drop jaws anywhere you go. We met these horses in Holland and were just starstruck. We were also impressed by the fact that they are very suitable for any type of rider. These horses have all the “buttons,” but have the wonderful mind and temperament to take care of inexperienced riders. Furthermore, these horses have VERY unique experience in that they have been hauled to different venues around Europe, had countless costumes on (and even long wings), have been exposed to loud music and crowds, lights- you name it, they have done it. This makes them very safe and a PERFECT partner for whatever you want to do.

Archie is a real fairytale showstopper. He has a GORGEOUS head and neck and an incredible long, thick mane! He is the old style, baroque Friesian which is very hard to find these days. Not only is he STUNNING, but also has the personality and temperament to match. He has such a kind, gentle soul. He will take care of you! He has some of the smoothest gaits you can get in a Friesian, both trot and canter. He is SUPER comfortable to sit the trot! Archie also knows the flying changes! He has excellent lateral work, you think it- he does it. He knows the Spanish walk and passage. This horse is truly incredible and SO much fun to ride. He loves to trail ride.. Can you imagine riding this handsome hunk on the beach?!

Archie is registered through the FPZV, the German Friesian registry. He is 11 years old and stands at 16 hands. We were so impressed by this horse; he is a horse that has so much to offer!
