The Rolex Central Park Horse Show’s lineup will feature a major Frederik the Great, a purebred Friesian stallion dubbed “the world’s most handsome horse.” This majestically equine is officially Internet famous and has racked up more than 48,000 likes on his Facebook page and 14 million views on his YouTube channel, where fans can watch this stud strut his stuff.
“Frederik has taken the world by storm and helped to shine an international spotlight on the equestrian world, allowing an unprecedented audience to appreciate these Friesian horses,” Mark Bellissimo, CEO of International Equestrian Group, LLC (IEG) and Founder of Rolex Central Park Horse Show, stated. “The Rolex Central Park Horse Show will bring Frederik to New York City to provide a special opportunity to showcase his majesty and beauty, giving New Yorkers and visitors from all over the globe a first-hand experience of this special horse.”
Frederik was born 15 years ago in the Netherlands, the homeland of the Freisian horse breed, but now lives in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas with owner Stacy Nazario. “We’re thrilled to be a part of Rolex Central Park Horse Show in New York City’s iconic Wollman Rink.”

The show is one of equestrian’s biggest annual events, featuring a variety of different horse breeds competing in different disciplines over five days. Arabians, Show Jumping, Dressage, Hunters and more, will compete and show their stuff.
