This event was so much fun for all. Seeing our youth saying good bye to outgrown boots that were being passed on to new kids was great! With tack, saddles and other items available, it turned out to be a great day. FHANE thanks all who participated.
In the Friesian community, the keuring is an annual inspection of horses by officials of the Dutch Friesian Studbook in the Netherlands. Representatives visit select locations in the United States, as well as locations around the world, to inspect horses and declare their fitness for admission to the Studbook based on movement and conformation.
Friesians are first inspected as weanlings and then, typically again as three year olds, although they can be judged at any time. A special inspection is available for the very best mares in the world at the age of seven.
Foals, mares and geldings are awarded “premie”, Dutch for premium or ratings. Ratings of 1st, 2nd and 3rd premie are given.
Friesian foals are required to attend a Keuring before they are permanently entered in the Foal Book. At the Keuring, each foal is given a designation of 1st, 2nd or 3rd or No Premium (Premie) which reflects how closely he or she adheres to the breed standard.
