Frieze Frame Friesians at The 120th National Horse Show Outdoor Championships - The Baroque Review

Wellington, Florida – October 22, 2003 -- Shaana Pritchard of West Palm Beach, Florida, is a dressage trainer who bases her Frieze Frame Friesians out of the prestigious "Lady Jean Ranch" in Jupiter, Florida. She has specialized in "Sport Horse Friesians" suitable for dressage for many years and is a member of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Freestyle Committee since its inception, as well as on the Board of Directors, as the "Performance Director", of the new "Friesians of America” Breed Registry. Promoting Freestyles, via her exhibitions with the Friesians, and good classical riding is a life long passion for Shaana. Some of her latest Quadrille endeavors that she has developed as Frieze Frame Friesians, have been seen at The 119th National Horse Show in 2002 (to record breaking crowds!), The National Freestyle Championships 2003, and also Dressage @ Devon Sept. 2003, where she had 8 Friesian stallions performing in the dark with only bright lights along the horse's outline.

Back by popular demand, these magnificent Friesian Stallions will once again be exhibiting at The 120th National Horse Show over Thanksgiving week. The Friesian breed is reportedly almost 3000 years old. The Friesian has their roots in medieval history. For those who were part of the record breaking crowds that attended The 19th National Horse Show in 2002, they will again be mesmerized by these "War Horses" of days gone by! If you have not seen these magnificent horses, don't miss the opportunity to be taken away to another time and place to see a horse that was developed in a time when a "Knights" life, fortune, and honor, were inextricably tied to his battle mount.

Today, the heart and soul of one of the world's most noble steeds has been preserved in the Friesian horse. Whether your interests lie in driven or ridden sport, you'll not find a more proficient equine companion.

The Friesian stallion quadrille presented for the enjoyment of The National Horse Show crowds, represent the best of the Dutch, German, and American Registry's, including their new patron, "Friesians of America". These stallions have traveled from across America to join ranks, to show you the Friesian breed with an American spirit! DO NOT MISS seeing the versatility, ability, and heart, that IS the Friesian horse! We will not only bring you the Friesian horse, but we will be incorporating other baroque breeds throughout the week as well, such as the Andalusian, Lippizan, and Lusitano! Stop by and visit Shanna’a barn on the show grounds, and meet the horses and riders up close and personal. It will be an experience you will not forget! "Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away".
