We added Hiltje to our herd in the fall of 1999. At the time
we were looking to acquire a broodmare with impeccable papers
and a good disposition. We got all that and more! As a bonus,
Hiltje is wonderful in harness; great in single harness or
with another horse by her side. She is also a good mother,
providing her foals with independence as well as instruction.
We're equally pleased with her strong yet friendly personality.
She does all that is asked of her, and enjoys her human companions,
but manages to maintain that "I am queen of the herd"
air about her.
Hiltje is medium height
and has a very sturdy build. Her coat is quite
black and she has an ample mane that falls well
below her neck. Her strong front end and high
head carriage make her very eye-catching when
in harness. As the Dutch judge said at her last
is a beautiful mare".

We are very excited about Hiltje's bloodlines. Her female
ancestors are from stam line 25 - one of the most successful
in Friesian history, having sired over a dozen approved
stallions. Hiltje herself has star,
model and/or preferent
on both dam and sire side for five generations!
Coriander was Hiltje's
first offspring and is rated a 1st premie star. Hiltje's papers have not been recently updated. Her mother Lysbeht is now Preferent, making Hiltje's line SP-S-S-SP.
