Equine Affaire 2006 - West Springfield, MA
During Equine Affaire in West Springfield, MA, Bob Labrie of Friesians of Majesty participated in filming the Friesian breed segment of The Saddle Club, a weekly television series based on the books by Bonnie Bryant. This series is seen in 14 countries and is offered in the United States on Discovery Kids every afternoon. The crew filmed breed segments to be able to illustrate breed characteristics as one of their show topics. Bob had Feike, our 5-year-old Ster Gelding with his beautiful long hair, in the arena with him to illustrate the beauty of the Friesian breed. Bob answered questions by the film crew as well as the crowd during this 15 minute interview.
