Brookside Friesians LLC is a private 5 barn, 20 stall facility located in Feeding Hills, MA. Brookside has grown over the years and now includes a full service breeding station, 180x150 outdoor riding arena with full dressage court and coming in fall of 2022, a new indoor riding arena will be added to be able to enjoy the winter New England months in warmth! It is owned and operated by Danielle and Justin Piascik and their family, who are wholeheartedly passionate and devoted to the Friesian breed. We specialize in the breeding, sales, and showing of Friesians and the sport of dressage and driving while keeping with the integrity of the KFPS.
Throughout the years, we found having a team was more effective, and let's face it, more fun! We have some of the greatest trainers in North America and Europe who have joined our team. As a team, we work together, play together, and cry together. As the Brookside Family, our mentality is everything is better when it is done with family.
As breeders dedicated to bettering the breed, we know that not everyone is able to financially afford a large sum of money to make having a Friesian a reality. We are proud to offer reasonable payment terms on any of our Friesians we have on the farm, to make owning your very own Friesian a reality! If we do not have your perfect horse, we are available to offer our services to help you find it! Please contact us with any questions or to make an appointment to come see one of the horses for sale. Brookside Friesians is happy to help you find the horse of your dreams and proud to work with exceptional breeders in both the US and the Netherlands. Please contact us for further information.
