Here is a Fjord pony I used to work with. His name is Snuffy, he was always a good boy, but could be pushy and stubborn. He never spooked, except for at bubbles and camera flashes. I could ride and drive him, and in the video he was 22 and in the time I knew him he was never lame.

Can they carry a larger rider? Would love to hear experiences with owners of Fjords. I do love their smaller draft size.

They can carry adult men. I've worked with 4 purebreds and about a dozen Fjord/qh crossed, and my thoughts of the breed are nothing but positive. What they all had in common was their willingness to work, very calm and smart, no-nonsense, easy keepers, and of course ADORABLE! I just love them.

This is my amazing fjord, she has quite unusual markings for a fjord, but i think she's gorgeous!

So, anymore fjord owners on the forum? I am trying to decide between getting a Fjord or Clydesdale. I love both breeds. Am leaning toward the Fjord as it will be ALOT easier to mount :) figure I could always add a clydesdale later.

I plan to do alot of trail riding and just riding near our home along gravel roads etc.

Would love to chat with anyone who owns a fjord. PM me!

between a fjord and clydsdale,i would go with the fjord. They are morse agile, they were made for rough terrain, and are willing to do anything you want and of course are a more manageable size.

3 fjords we've worked with carried my 120kg boss without batting an eyelid.

I will pop pics up when I'm on my Mac of me showing fjords. It's show time about now so I have awesome pics. Sadly they are not my fjords but a fried/ client
