Our goal is to provide a Rated Show Circuit with rules and regulations to
protect the Horses while providing a fair and enjoyable playing field. We will
promote IFSHA activities by offering a Year End Awards Program and recognition
for Friesians that excel in open competition, as well as junior equitation,
english pleasure (saddle seat, hunt seat), costume, western pleasure, halter,
dressage, driving, and even trail classes. There will also be fun classes like
Liberty to promote the Friesian horse in its natural splendor. Due to the
efforts of IFSHA, in 2005 USEF also began to provide recognition and annual
awards for the Friesian horse.
Every horse containing Friesian blood should be able to connect with and
preserve their authentic Dutch heritage.
Through IFSHA we want to reach out to all people with horses containing
Friesian blood and bring them together to protect, promote, and establish
a harmonious show community.
