How do you pronounce fjord?

So what is the correct pronunciation? Also, what health problems to fjords have? How long do they live and how long into their older years can you ride?

I pronounce it Fi- your-D

I'm sure they're like most other equines that they can live up to 30 years and if they're healthy you can ride them when they're aged.

But I'm just guessing.

It's pronounced "fee-ORD".

You can hear the announcer say it three times within the first 45 seconds of the video.

In Norwegian, the "j" has the same sound as the English "y" as in "yes", if that makes the pronounciation make more sense.
