Fjord owners.....Do you think a fjord would be a good breed for a beginner/advanced beginner?

Yes absolutely! We used them in our school They were great. However the beginner in question MUST be stubborn. Although exceptionally quiet I've never met one that wasnt stubborn!

I've seen lots of beginners on Fjords. They're generally levelheaded, and very rarely mean. The wide back can be a little daunting for a beginner to wrap their legs around at first. And yes, they can be stubborn/strong-willed, so you'll need a stubborn/strong-willed beginner to match.

by stubborn do you mean a constant fight or testing or just a strong leader with a firm hand and the testing is done?

I've ridden at least 20 different Fjords over 10 years, and none of them gave me a fight. One would maybe decide that he didn't want to trot that day - he wanted to just walk. It would just take a little extra persuasion to get him to see it my way. One would decide that she really did want to gallop all 3 miles back to the barn on an icy trail, and I had to keep reminding her for 3 miles that that wouldn't be a good idea. I don't know that that's really so much different from most other breeds, and it might have more to do with training than the breed. None ever gave me a fight or tried to get me off - nothing malicious or mean-spirited. But when they decide they want to do something their way, they do like to try it, sometimes a few times, and they're very strong. So I guess it's testing. A firm hand and consistency would get them in a different mindset fairly quickly. I think it's because they're pretty smart, so their little minds are always working on something.
I've never been scared on a Fjord. And I've never had a Fjord hold a grudge. They forgive and give kisses very quickly.

These are not my horses, but some of the Fjords I have been lucky enough to meet. I’m not the biggest Fjord Fan, but I have met individuals that I have absolutely loved! And I have to admit; they are kind of cute in their own way.
(by the way; they are called horses not ponies;) )

First we have a picture of Belinda, a summer friend of my horse. She is turning 32 this year, and is still beautiful and strong, and is in use every day.


This is Emil (the darkest, gelding) and his friend Snehvit (means snow-white, mare). Me and my sister borrowed these two for a summer, and had great fun riding in the mountains with them. Emil was really fat and lazy, most of the time, but he was also sweet and gentle. Snehvit was an “other kind” of Fjord, the lighter version with more speed.
