World-famous Friesian stallion shows off for his fans with fairytale appearance

Meet Frederik the Great. It may be a presumptuous name, but once you see this stallion in action, you will agree that it's appropriate. It takes a superlative to describe the awe-inspiring beauty and grace of this magnificent animal.
Frederik is a Friesian, the only horse breed native to the Netherlands. He displays, with an air of proud confidence, the high-stepping trot, glossy black coat and fairytale mane and tail that typify the breed.

"The Great" isn't Frederik's only title; he was dubbed "The World's Most Handsome Horse" by his YouTube followers, who have viewed his videos million of times. Jimmy Fallon mentioned Frederik in a May 2016 monologue, calling him "almost like a Fabio-type of horse!"
Imported from the Netherlands in 2006, Frederik is more than beautiful -- he's a Grand Champion dressage horse, winning the title a few months after arriving in the United States. He currently resides at Pinnacle Friesians, a farm in the Ozark mountain region of northwest Arkansas.
Look for Frederik to be featured in "Frederik the Great: Beyond the Beauty," due to be released in spring 2017, and in a documentary titled "They Have No Voices," which will be released later that year.
