The Friesian horse reportedly dates back 3000 years though the horse we know today was developed in the twelfth century in northern Europe.  Friesians were ridden by the Teutonic Knights and used as war horses for the crusades.  They could carry large loads, exist on meager rations, and were agile enough to be effective in battle. The Friesian is a heavy bodied, black, up-headed horse with an expressive face, high-set neck and outstanding crest. Their manes and tails are luxuriant and long and they have feathering from the knees down. They are intelligent, sweet natured and willing. Their powerful elastic gait, grace and agility make them excellent at dressage, driving and jousting.
Morgans originated with Justin Morgan, a dark bay stallion born around 1789 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is thought to have been of Thoroughbred extraction but speculation includes possible Arabian and Friesian heritage. Some historians refer to his dam as the "old Dutch mare." This original Morgan was known for his strength, speed and stamina. The breed grew and spread quickly as thrifty New Englanders recognized these qualities stamped into the offspring The Morgan is easily recognized having an attractive head set on a muscular crested neck. They have strong shoulders, short strong legs and are both flexible and maneuverable. Morgans are known for their versatility: they excel in park and pleasure riding or driving, dressage, jumping, trail, western riding, and cutting. Their stamina makes them excellent endurance horses.
The Moriesian Horse is the result of a breeding program initiated in the United States to produce horses that combine the elegance and charisma of the Friesian with the versatility of the Morgan. They display an up-headed stature, expressive face, compact body and long thick mane and tail. Their slope of shoulder and movement tends to be more Friesian-like which gives them a regal appearance. Their average size of 15.0 to 16.0 hands makes them comfortable for most riders. Lighter boned than a Friesian, Moriesians have more of the qualities sought after in a sport horse. The balance and symmetry of this animal is truly art in motion. They make natural show animals that are magnificent to watch, ride and drive. Many have shown themselves to excel in combined driving competitions and have proven apt competitors in classical dressage. Moriesians are adaptable and eager to perform.  Coming from two breeds known for their heart, mild manners, and friendly dispositions Moriesians make wonderful family horses.  The breed is honest and willing to please.  Its versatility brings lasting value to the owner.
