Visit Friesians of Majesty
Extraordinary Friesians of Majesty
Stately beautiful jet-black Show Horses
Activities abound! When you escape to our romantic country inn here in southern Vermont, you may want to see some of the amazing sights that can be found in the area.
Just 15 minutes from The Four Columns resides Friesians of Majesty, a breed of jet-black horses that originated in the Netherlands. Owner Robert Labrie proudly displays his line of extraordinary horses at his 650 acre farm, recognized as one of the best Friesian facilities in North America. Here is champion Othello at his finest!
Visitors may schedule private riding or carriage lessons…
These gentle horses are approachable and a delight to ride. The staff is prepared to instruct beginners or experienced riders. Younger children are ‘double teamed’ by the instructors to give them an extraordinary and safe ride on top of elegance and grace.
Enjoy an elegant carriage ride on the grounds
A romantic ride around the farm will rekindle the magic of any relationship, and there is no better way to add a touch of drama and class to your Vermont wedding! We can arrange to have a Friesian-drawn carriage at your wedding, an elegant way to arrive and depart.

Winter Sleigh Rides have been a Four Columns guest favorite
In the winter, take a journey back in time with a Friesian –drawn sleigh ride. Whether you would like to enjoy the bright sun bouncing off the sparkling snow or the brilliant moon reflecting on the snowy fields, the picturesque farm surrounded by majestic mountains is the perfect backdrop for that special sleigh ride.
Our guests have been delighted with visits to see Robert and this special place…
Just recently we visited with friends and were able to schedule riding lessons for the kids followed by a special performance and tour. The tour included a visit to some frisky new members of the Friesian family. Here Briana in her riding regale is escorted through some of the basics.
Robert put his prize stallion, Othello through the paces in a stunning performance of high steps and tight maneuvers. A beautiful sight.
Robert then escorted us to meet more of the Friesian family. Each of these little guys has the personal care and attention of Robert. From the day they arrive they are often lulled to sleep in Robert’s arms. As they mature, training and learning the ways of a champion is facilitated by the close relationship between the horse and his master. It shows in the performance and the character of these beautiful horses.
