FHANA Royal Friesian
Achievement of Breeding Excellence Award with Exceptional Mare

Sponsored by Crown Jewel Friesians

The FHANA Royal Friesian Achievement of Breeding Excellence Award with Exceptional Mare is designed to publicly recognize, honor and celebrate our members that have excelled at breeding an exceptional producing Royal KFPS mare. This difficult to achieve award will be granted to the elite combination of breeder and mare that reaches Double Preferent (8), Triple Preferent (12) or Quadruple Preferent (16). The renowned breeder that earns this prestigious award has notably surpassed ordinary breeding success. They have committed themselves to many years of selecting the very best breeding combinations for their mare. This success was achieved under the limitations of breeding with the fresh cooled semen of stallions that are standing in the United States or Canada, or breeding to the limited number of stallions available to the breeder through the use of frozen semen. These mares have demonstrated excellence in consistently producing quality offspring  certain to positively influence the exterior as well as the movement of American and Canadian Friesians. The esteemed mares that earn this award are held in the highest regard by the Royal KFPS and are considered the Crown Jewels of the studbook.
