2011 IFSHA World Champion Friesian Liberty Stallion

 

Watch until the end of the video, when Sjoerd's music begins to replay after the Champion roses have been placed on his back, I LOVE what the gentleman at the end of the video does. Standing to his feet, he raises his hands in praise and honor of God. I do not know this man, nor did I see him do that at the time. It was not until I purchased this video from the show videographer and saw the man drawn to praise God at that moment, it absolutely moved my soul. It made the long haul from southern CA to Virginia with 6 horses and 3 teenage girls; the days, weeks and months of preparation and training; the thousands of dollars we had to raise for the trip and the sacrifices made in order to to compete at the 2011 World Champions COMPLETELY and utterly worth it! Whether he was the only one or whether there were others, touching his life alone is priceless to us. We hope you watch this video and are blessed!

2010 Region 10 IFSHA Friesian Liberty Champion

   
        

Sjoerd did not just win ribbons and trophies at the 2010 Region 10 Championships, more importantly was he touched the hearts of the judges, stewards and the spectators at the show with his heart, presence, disposition and amazing God given talent!! His liberty performance brought the house down and tears to nearly all who personally witnessed it. We are thankful to be able to bless others with this performance! God can use all of His creation to touch hearts and lives.

The Liberty class was held in the evening AFTER he did a full day of 8 classes, yet he still performed for the crowd with his whole heart. His last riding class was completed just 5 minutes before he did his Liberty performance.  We thank David of Davko Films for creating this video of Sjoerd's Liberty class for us.

Sjoerd - The Stallion Of A Lifetime

   

Sjoerd (pronounced like Short but with a "d" on the end) is a gift from God and we hope you are blessed and touched by his pages of videos and photos! Sjoerd is an elegant Purebred Friesian who is a Triple Ster (Star) First Premie, High Merit stallion, imported from the Netherlands. He is elegant, absolutely captivating and the phenomenal quality of this exceptional stallion is simply undeniable.

Sjoerd has been DNA tested by UC Davis to be Homozygous for black, you will never get a chestnut foal out of Sjoerd. He is the only breeding stallion in the U.S. sired by TSJALKE 397. A GREAT outcross stallion for the heavily in-bred U.S. lines.

 

Sjoerd is truly a *one-of-a-kind* Friesian stallion. His disposition, unique conformation, and incredible movement: elevation and impulsion WITH extension not only garnered him 60 IFSHA World/National Champion Friesian Titles but he consistently wins over the hearts of spectators and judges! Sjoerd is a CHAMPION in multiple disciplines: In-Hand, Saddle Seat, Show Hack, Liberty, Equitation, Dressage, Driving, In-Hand Trail, Walk/Trot, Ridden Trail, Hunter, Junior Equitation, Western and Costume. He is an INCREDIBLE VERSATILE athlete.

 

 The Friesian Heritage Horse (HH), the German (FPZV) and the Dutch (KFPS) registries ALL awarded him the coveted (and not easily earned!) STAR (ster) status the first time he was presented for it making him a rare TRIPLE STAR STALLION. He was then bestowed the extreme honor of achieving a near PERFECT score at his 2009 FPZV Inspection and he was "Highly Recommended" for the FPZV Stallion Performance Testing at just 4 years old! In 2011 he went through a very thorough official FEIT Inspection through the Friesian Heritage Horse Registry (HH) and he was awarded Star, First Premie, High Merit and the highest scoring horse in his category in the history of the registry! All of Sjoerd's Purebred Friesian and Part-bred Friesian foals are eligible for registration through Friesian Heritage Horse, IFSHA and USEF.

 
 

 Sjoerd pictured above with his FEIT High Merit ribbon and FEIT 1st Premie ribbon awarded through the Friesian Heritage Horse Registry (HH). Sjoerd's Purebred Friesian and Part-bred Friesian foals are eligible for inspection and registration through multiple registries and have full showing and breeding rights throughout the USA!

 
 
 

Sjoerd has a short, strong back, short coupling, and deep, strong hip give him a natural ability to collect under himself and his extremely laid back shoulder and perfectly set neck make him an incredible ride at any gait. Feel free to come meet Sjoerd in person and be prepared to FALL IN LOVE! Sjoerd is a different kind of Friesian! Sjoerd LOVES people and his willing heart an attitude make every thing we do with him a sheer pleasure. He has greatly blessed our lives and we hope to share him with you through his pages of photos and videos.

 

  

           

 

   

  
        

           

 

  
              
              
              
        
     
       
      
  

    

 

    
        
       
        
        
       
       
      
    
              
              

Sjoerd is simply an amazing stallion, beyond description or comprehension; truly a horse of a lifetime!

He has superior conformation, an incredible disposition, extreme athleticism, unparalleled versatility with exceptional beauty. He also passes these traits consistently on to his foals.

Sjoerd won this award again in 2011!

    

    
        
          
    
          
                                  
          
    
        
              
      
   
    
          
     
             
        
    
    
        
          
    
          
    
             
    
        

    
        
          
    
    
          
              
      
   
    
          
     
    
        
                    
      
              
        
        
    
          
    
        
             
    
        
          

    
        
          
    
    
        
          
    
          
    
        
                    
      
                                  
          
    
        
             
    
        
          

My reaction to learning Sjoerd and I had won 2010 IFSHA World Champion Saddle Seat Junior Horse against some very outstanding competition!

He is an amazing and special stallion with a huge heart, extreme presence and talent unlike any you have ever seen.

OUR PHOTOS ARE  ** NOT **  "PHOTOSHOPPED"

Sjoerd, Tynan and Anaiah are highly trained and highly skilled. They have been BEAUTIFULLY captured by the incredible photographer Kevin Kidder. We have spend years training our beautiful Friesian stallion Sjoerd. Tynan and Anaiah have been riding their entire lives and they work very hard to be able to achieve such an exceptional level of riding to perform the things you see in these photos. PLEASE appreciate the photos for the hard work, talent and years of training that went into creating them. If in doubt, you may contact Kevin Kidder and he can provide detailed information on the photos for those who just cannot accept that the photos are all real. If you STILL doubt, come on out and see SJOERD for yourselves, he will blow you away!

Typically we keep articles on Sjoerd on his Sjoerd Press Releases Page. However, this Feb 2012 issue of the California Horsetrader was too incredible an experience to not share here on Sjoerd's main page. We are extremely thankful and grateful to the California Horsetrader for giving us the opportunity to share Sjoerd's story.

 I am very touched and honored Warren Wilson chose to do this article on Sjoerd and our family!  Click here to go to Sjoerd Press Releases and view the article written out.
