Breed Standards & Gradings
Friesian horses are graded, at events called ‘keurings’, by a team of qualified inspectors from the Koninklijke Vereniging “Het Friesch Paarden -Stamboek (KFPS) (The Royal Friesian Horse Studbook).
In the Netherlands this can be either at Breeders’ Days organised throughout the summer by the regional Breeders’ Clubs (such as the prestigious Blauwhuis keuring), at Studbook organised keurings, or in some cases at private foal inspections held at the larger stud farms.
Overseas Organisations may organise regional Breeders’ Days or annual central inspections.
FHAGBI is responsible for organising the annual Inspections in the UK / Republic of Ireland, usually held in early September.
