Frisian horses

28 May 2021



Frisian horses have been used as workhorses since the Middle Ages. During the week they plowed the land and on Sunday they were dressed up for the carriage to go to church. This custom grew into Sjees (Ring stabbing contest), where the Frisian horse serves as a draft horse.

Nowadays riders are still obliged to wear a Frisian traditional costume when participating in a competition, as can be seen on the tile tableau below, which we have manufactured for a customer!
In addition, we would like to show more of these majestic animals on manufactured tiles, tableaus and pottery, such as the Stormruiter and Phryso.

Made in Harlingen!
