Join FHAGBI - Membership 2018

We currently have three membership levels; Gold, Silver and Bronze, each with their own benefits, which you can buy online right now. Membership to FHAGBI is open to everyone, although you must own a KFPS Registered Friesian in order to become a Gold or Silver member. If you are simply an enthusiast, or perhaps thinking of buying one, you can still join as a Bronze member.
