Dries’ sire, Jasper 366 is very well known in Friesian circles for his spectacular movement. This movement together with his great temperament has clearly been carried over to this son. Dries’ dam; Model + Pref mare Hiltsje fan Nes took top honours in the 7 year and older section at the Central Inspection in 2001.
