‘The most magnificent horse in the world is the Friesian horse.’ That was the message shared across thousands of websites, newspapers, radio- and television stations last May. With long black manes, a strapping and unwavering appearance. More than ever before does the Friesian horse appeal to the imagination.
On 11 and 12 January dozens of Friesian horses are the undisputed stars of FRIESIAN PROMS. They will share the arena with singer Douwe Bob, the famous Italian tenor Alessandro Safina, Elske DeWall who recently played the lead role of Maria in ´The Passion´, soprano Belinda Vermeer and many others. The artists will be accompanied by The Symphonic Music Connection under the leadership of conductor Theo Brouwer.
The programme of Friesian Proms hosts an abundance of horse acts, combined with the performances of the artists and musically accompanied by The Symphonic Music Connection. Under the leadership of Director of horse acts Theo Smedes, Roos Hermanides performs an aerial act with the Friesian horse as the connecting element. Frenchman Gilles Fortier and his horses demonstrate their feeling for show and spectacle in the WTC. He travels the world with his shows, reason why the organisation is proud to have succeeded in contracting him for FRIESIAN PROMS.
And needless to say, there will be scores of Friesian horses, riders and drivers from our ‘home ranks’.
