SIRE OF 2013 IFSHA WORLD CHAMPION Sporthorse In Hand, Dressage WT NATIONAL CHAMPION and WT English Pleasure NATIONAL CHAMPION- The HAIR is real; the charisma is THERE; the temperament is FANTASTIC; the movement is SPECTACULAR... AND HE PASSES IT ON TO HIS BABIES!!!! If you want babies that are stunning to look at, superb riding partners and have all of the charisma in the world to excel as a show champion, exhibition horse or even just a stunning trail partner - HESSEL IS THE SIRE! Hessel is a purebred imported Friesian stallion by Preferent Friesian stallion Feitse. Hessel is big, he is gorgeous with a lovely head, eyes and neck AND he is absolutely a wonderful animal with an amazingly gentle disposition. Hessel is what people dream about when they think of "Friesian". He is a farm favorite with his lovely looks, mane/tail/forelock/feathering; his great temperament and his big and powerful movement. Hessel is already over 17 hands for those owners looking to breed for a taller Friesian sporthorse - yet he is very light on his feet and athletic. Hessel's trot is extremely smooth and fun to ride with a BIG uphill canter! His bloodlines are stellar, he is a future star and he will make you fall in LOVE with Friesians if you have not already done so. He is so lovely both inside and out that he deserves every opportunity to become a sire of Friesian sporthorses for the future. Hessel is pursuing a career as an exhibition and show horse with a stellar work ethic and a willingness to please and gaits under saddle are going to allow him to be very competitive in dressage. Every time he is worked he tries 100% and wants to please his trainer. Hessel is enjoying the atmosphere of a busy barn and while being tacked up or groomed you will find him with his head sticking out of his stall looking at all of the activity in the aisleways.
