Welcome to Black Magic Farms
Our love for the Friesian breed has existed for over 43 years and we were proud to bring the first Friesian into the state of Utah nearly 30 years ago. Our focus is on producing the finest Friesians for dressage, and all of our horses possess a willing, intelligent personality as well as exceptional movement. We are proud to have as our trainers Judith Pietersen from Friesland and Margo Gogan from Utah. Judith is a renown Friesian trainer, rider, judge and clinician who has competed in and won prestigious competitions in Europe against talented warmbloods. Margo is a USDF gold medal rider and trainer who has taken many young horses to the Grand Prix level. Under their guidance our horses have won numerous awards, both locally and nationally. We are also extremely lucky to have our horses receive training from some of the top clinicians out there; including Melissa Creswick, and Debbie McDonald.
In 2012, we imported the 5 year old stallion Ype (pronounced E-Pa) (Tsjabring 429 Sport x Naen 264 Preferent). In his short career in the Netherlands, this exceptional stallion was able to qualify for the finals of the Subli-Cup (the Netherlands equivalent to the FEI 5 year old test) with only three rides out of seven rides possible. Even though his move to the USA prevented him from participating in the finals, his high scores enabled him to finish 6th out of a field of 67 warmbloods. Ype also received the highest score ever achieved by a Friesian in the Subli Cup - 80.2%. His debut in the USA was equally impressive, with scores in the 70's at Second and Third Level. We are very excited to see the talents this impressive stallion can bring to the Friesian breed.
