Welcome to Extreme Friesian Stables

We’re the Michielli’s! Owner’s and proud operators of Extreme Friesian Stables. We currently live just outside of Portland, Oregon on 40 beautiful acres overlooking the Willamette river. Our four amazing children Taylor, Kendra, Evan and Ana enjoy our friesians almost as much as we do. Joe and I decided to purchase our first two friesians in 2019. We both had experience with horses from a young age. Joe’s grandfather bred and raced Thoroughbreds and he also spent some time riding quarter horses. I’ve been riding since I was 5 and have ridden many disciplines such as barrel racing, hunter jumpers and dressage. When we decided to start our breeding program we talked a lot about which breed we both would enjoy and when I mentioned Friesians Joe immediately lit up and said ‘YES’! After much due diligence and countless hours researching the Friesian breed we were fortunate enough to bring home our first two yearling fillies.

It was a big learning curve but we were up for the challenge! We wanted to start with young horses so we could create the bond and have horses that we could grow with and care for from a young age. We could not have ended up with more opposite personalities! Not all friesians are the same. Our beautiful Isadora of Windy Hallow “Izzy” was full of energy with a big tall neck and lots of spunk and pizaz! We consider her to be of sport variety and we are excited to see how she does in the show ring. She is a total Ferrari! Geartje Fan Black Pearl “Gabby” was more mellow and gentle with a very kind and sweet disposition. She has been the favorite amongst our kids. Don’t get me wrong they both are very sweet and Izzy has the cutest winnie!  I’m grateful for both as they have taught us a lot with handling and we continue to learn each and every day.

We have grown to over a dozen KFPS Royal Friesians now and look forward to what the future holds for our family. We have developed our breeding program based on the highest of standards for the Friesian Breed to honor and protect its noble heritage for future generations. From the care they receive on a daily basis to the products, feed, and training we expect only the very best! It truly is an honor to have such wonderful horses in our lives each and every day. We are excited to share what we have learned and offer new Friesian owners the opportunity to own their very own KFPS registered Royal Friesian.
