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.

Armando is a super talented 12 year old Friesian gelding. This horse really looks like a dancer when he moves. He move off the hind wonderfully. He does an excellent passage and knows some piaffe too. Has a wonderful, collected canter. He is 2nd level dressage. Armando also has very good lateral movement. He is forward when you want him to be and very slow and quiet if you are not asking. He is safe for a beginner rider and can teach you so much. He also knows the Spanish walk! Armando stands at 16 hands. He loves to work and is so much fun to ride! We are very excited about this boy.
