The Friesian Cross is also called Friesian Sport Horse or Friesianx and is a horse breed that is developed in United States of America.

The purebred Friesian that is originating in Netherlands crossed with sport horse produced the Friesian Sport Horse.
The best of both worlds is used for a graceful horse. The Friesian is a purpose-bred horse and stamps a quiet and gentle personality along with improved bone and foot.Crossbreeds that were made with the Friesian horse include crosses with draft horses, such as the French Percheron, the American Morgan, Arabians, Andalusian horse, American Paint Horse, Saddlebred, Thoroughbred, Tennessee Walkers and many other Warmbloods and sport horse types.
Each cross has its own name, so the crossbreed between the Firesian and the Morgan horse is known as Moriesian FriesianAndalusian is known as Warlander, FriesianSaddlebred as the Georgian Grande, and the coss between FriesianTennessee as Friewalker.
Due to their bloodlines, the offspring are distinct in color, type and size. Though lighter in build than the pure-bred Friesian, all Friesian Crosses are maintaining several characteristics of the Friesian, such as the disposition, long manes and feathering at the fetlocks on the lower legs.
