Birkin bags are soooo yesterday. Collecting expensive horses is the new hobby of the Kardashian/Jenner/West family.
They certainly enjoy the beach vacation trail ride, but the super famous California family also enjoys owning and riding horses. From Kim and Kanye’s herd of 14 majestic horses to Kendall’s “horse girl” self description, are the Kardashian family some sort of kowgirls?

14 Friesians call the Kardashian/West’s Wyoming ranch their home. Yes, 14!!
Kim Kardashian Just Shared North’s Friesian and wow. In a June 2020 tweet from Kim, she showed off one of North’s beautiful “Freesians.” Spelling error aside, you can’t help but think, why 14? My guess, because they can.
For us horse lovers, Friesians have always been on our radar. Elegant, powerful and EXPENSIVE. According to the website U.S. Friesian Referral, the average cost of a Fresian ranges from $7,000 to $600,000. And knowing the luxurious Kardashian/Wests’ lifestyle, all 14 horses are probably top of the line.
Friesians are originally from Friesland, one of twelve provinces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (Holland). The flashy horses were highly desired by knights for their strength and athleticism during battle. Later, Friesians were used in high level European riding schools, raced, and shipped worldwide. Today, these horses are a multi-functional medieval breed. Now, 14 live on a ranch in Wyoming with the Kardashian/West family. What a world we live in.
Every little girl dreams of getting a pony, and Kylie Jenner’s daughter’s (pricey) dreams have been answered. Stormi, Kylie’s two-year-old girl, is the newest owner of “Frozen.”
The beautiful light grey (almost white) pony was purchased for a whopping $200,000 by Jenner in July 2020. Frozen arrived in Los Angeles, freshly imported from the Netherlands and is currently being quarantined before he moves to his new California stable.
The pony’s breeder, Stal Wilten, seems to have confirmed the sale via Instagram. This new addition to the Kardashian horse herd is a cutie!
Although not a horse collector (yet) Khloe has actually been riding for many years. She took lessons in her youth and even has continued to ride intermittently through the past few years.
Even the eldest Kardashian/Jenner sister has logged some hours in the saddle. While visiting Kanye and Kim’s Wyoming ranch, Kourtney and daughter Penelope took to the trails. The pair was all business as they rode their sorrels across the range.
Kendall Jenner calls herself a “horse girl.” In an interview with The Cut in 2019, Jenner described her childhood with horses and her first pony, “Megan.”
“I’m a horse girl, literally. I grew up riding horses,” she said, “So for my whole entire life I would beg my parents to please get me a pony. I wasn’t just some little girl who was like, ‘I need a pony for no reason.’ It was my life… And I wanted one so bad.” On the first year Jenner didn’t ask her parents for the specific pony she wanted, an equine named “Megan,” she woke up on Christmas morning to find a “concession” gift waiting for her: a saddle atop an electric dirt bike. But at the bottom of the drive way was what she really wanted, Megan. “I was like, ‘No, fucking way.’ Well, I didn’t say that. I was 12. But I ran outside, and as I ran out the pony whinnied.” As she told the Cut, “I’m very lucky. In our family, we all spoil each other.”
Since Megan, the supermodel Jenner sister has taken riding lessons, used horses in photo shoots and has even gone for a ride or two across the globe.
So with all these Kardashian horses, when do we start calling it a k-herd? The “K” is silent of course.
