Imported in December of 2017, this stunning 2009 Friesian stallion (Maurits 437 x Marije Fan’e Hurddraversdyk) is now offered for sale at Sunrise Farms Sporthorses, Inc. A perfect gentleman in the barn and the dressage arena, Douwe K.W. displays no studly behavior and is easy to handle, clip, and bathe with no vices.
Sure to turn heads at any show because of his stately presence, Douwe has been shown through Fourth Level in Holland and is suitable for the amateur rider looking for a safe and tolerant horse to take them up the levels. Any mistake can be made on this horse’s back and he won’t even blink an eye, since he’s always trying to do right by his rider. Incredibly soft in the bridle with big, flowing gaits and a trot (and canter!) that are a joy to sit, Douwe also has the big engine required for upper level dressage work, and the mind to do it. He moves laterally off the leg and listens to the rider’s aids, especially when they come from the seat. He has clean X-rays and no unsoundness issues, is an easy keeper, and is extremely adaptable and loving. A dream horse in every way, Douwe is ready to be your new dance partner.
