Jason Tice on the Friesian Horse Association North America
Jason tice was executive director of the FNorth American Riesian Horse Association (FHANA) for over 13 years. He came to FHANA based on his experience in membership management and event planning. Previously, he had planned events for the senior PGA tour on events such as the Allianz Championship and the senior LPGA tour on events such as the classic HyVee. He saw the Frisian breed gain popularity in North America, especially in the sports world and with the Amish community. Not only can this breed compete at high levels of dressage and driving, but they are now enjoying success in Western dressage. A native of Ames, IA, and a graduate of Iowa State University, his interest in horses began when he met his wife Jessica. They currently have a 22 year old Arab whom they raised from a baby and a thoroughbred off-road.
Additional information: We featured the Frisian breed in the August 2020 issue of Illustrated horse, but for those who are subscribed, you will be able to see another breed profile in the next January / February issue of Illustrated horse.
