FHAGBI sees its role as a Members Association available to inform, help and guide members in as easy and friendly a way as possible.
There can be pitfalls in buying a Friesian horse and FHAGBI is here to ensure, wherever possible, that members do actually buy what they had intended. This is done by quarterly newsletters, specialised talks at social gatherings and personal contact with other members or more generally directly with the Secretary.
Having found their horse, Members still need help in the showing of their horse for grading and help is available in all aspects of this.
If you are considering buying a Friesian horse, please take your time and learn as much as possible. Quick, uninformed decisions are expensive and heartbreaking. Membership of FHAGBI will give you this information.
