My new favorite breed
I started a similar thread a while back but what the heck!
I learned to ride on a Fjord gelding named Shiner when I was a kid & just recently bought my very first named Bella, a 10-yr-old mare that I got back in December, 2010.
In general they are a very very calm & honest breed, however they can be incredible stubborn especially if not started properly (which Bella was not).

Bella in particular has the funniest personality. She loves to give kisses and has a tendancy to lie down in the snow when you're riding her

Nope, that's Wakiya she's a pure Colonial Spanish horse, she's dark in the winter, but she's actually a grulla roan. More pictures of her and Zues (the fjord), he's an awesome horse.






I miss Zeus and the gang since we moved (he's my trainer's lesson/dressage/therapeutic/beginner's/trail/everything horse)

This is Fifi, a 14.2 hh fjord gelding that is at my barn in France. :) Personally, I find him much more comfortable to ride than a finer horse like a TB - but of course that is just personal preference! He is the sole horse at our club who isn't a TB or Selle Franšais. Normally, you'd think that he's be the one slinking along behind the other horses but nope! He can JUMP! And I honestly think he has the fastest canter I have ever ridden, he passes everyone when we canter around the arena while warming up.

this is toril, he is 7 and is 13.2 hands tall.i purchased him in january as my first horse,and all I can tell you is he is a handful lol.when people say fjords are slow and pokey, they havent met toril,he is VERY forward and almost imposible to stop,thats why he excels at mounted games and XC. http://erouse.smugmug.com/Horses/Norwegian-Fjords his previous owner was a photographer and took hundreds of pics of him along with her other fjords who they do eventing with,just look up toril,he has 3 galleries.

I'll share the moment I first learned about Fjords. I looked at a book in 2nd grade. I was 7 and was about to start riding.It was horse breeds of north america. I found Fjords and I'm like "FUZZY!" lol. I looked at them and read the article. I fell in love. I swore from that day on that I would buy a Fjord when I grew up. It hasn't happened yet but its only been a hanful of years.
