Welcome to

Lebanon Friesian Society (LFS)

Lebanon Friesian Society (LFS) is a community of riders who care about the welfare of horses and mainly promote the Friesian and PRE riding experience. The loving memory of Jasper 366, known as the king of stallions, in addition to the worldwide reputation of Frederick the Great, sparked a genuine interest in founding Lebanon Friesian Society. Although Friesians are still very few in Lebanon and the neighbouring countries, LFS aims at increasing the number of Friesians and maintaining strong connections with International/Dutch breeders and trainers.

LFS invites young Lebanese and Middle-Eastern riders to ride, show-drive and also own KFPS approved Friesians. LFS is currently building a professional network of Friesian Enthusiasts who can share and transmit their passion without any limits or restrictions.
