Marije came to us as a yearling . We went in November 2005 to the horsemarket in Hedel , the Netherlands . When we went up the market there was a man with only Friesian horses and the horse first in line was Marije . My eyes fell directly on her. I said to my friend: if she has a good paper and comes out of a star mare , I'll buy her . He said I was crazy! She did came from a star mare and yes she could move also . But my friend said , you 're not going to buy the first horse you see , let's look further. So we did indeed have a tour , but no horse could tempt me and so we quickly went back to the first seller . The sale was quickly riveted ! He had some other good horses to , including the half-sister from the same mother of Marije . This horse was called Femke Jildau and was a four-year old brood mare . She also moved back with us to Belgium , but unfortunately after a few months she deceased of colic with us. We are now so many years later and Marije has still been the best buy of my life ! What do I love that horse ! She is everything you could wish for !
It is a beautiful mare with a very sweet and cooperative character . She has very good movements.
Her long mane are unique ! They are more than 1m80 long, if they are loose , they depend a lot on the ground. Hence, her mane are always braided , otherwise it would not be possible to keep them.

Her beautiful manes she inherited from her sire Jasper 366. Jasper is a very well-known and beloved stallion at the KFPS . He himself had been ridden at grand prix level dressage and has already many offspring that do well in sports. Jasper is now stated preference , which means that he has produced, at least four approved stallions, a title that few stallions able to appropriate ! Horses descended from Jasper are known for their good character . They could have just that little bit more endurance , only their willingness to work make this more than good!
Jasper is descended from the stallion Olof 315, which in turn is a son of the legendary Reitse 272, also preferred.

Dam of Marije is the star mare Jildau . Jildau comes from a good bloodline . Marije comes from the mare line with number 024 . She has a very good paper with 3 times star and 1 times approved pedigree in the maternal line . Marije herself was declared star with a head place in her class at the breeding show of Wachtebeke 2008 with very positive reviews from the judges. We were so proud!

Marije is an all-round horse . She is driven both dressage and carriage driving for use in all possibilities . In our dressage demonstrations for Flanders Horse Expo , Marije was almost always there. Many people were charmed by her and found her a wonderful reference for the Friesian breed .
In the winter season of 2012-2013 we drove some indoor competitions with her , both in singles and in tandem . In 2013 we started with CAN 3 competitions at national level with a tandem and thereby Marije was used for dressage and cones as the back horse.

We gave a lot of demonstrations with our frisians , we drove elegance competitions, promenades , parades , etc ... Marije did all that work just fine. Both under saddle , in singles , tandem , three and four-in-hand teams. Currently Marije is being perfected in dressage , but also in driving we continue with her .

With Marije we have for the present bred just one time . She had a beautiful daughter , MDR 's Dark Gauke . Marije clearly has passed her qualities on to her foal . Gauke is really a quality horse very much like her dam ! Gauke was sold to friends , family Daneels - Vekeman and has since been trained with us. Mother and daughter were already together on the coach and also together in the parade in our village Mater .

We hope to have a lot of years of enjoyment of our beautiful Marije. She is really a top horse for me that has everything to continue with and make my dream come true!
