Hey guys! Just wanted to post a link to my new thread. I'm looking for Fjord pictures for future art projects and need some help!

He's not mine, but he's at the therapeutic riding center where I work. Stellar is a 15.2 hand Fjord... he's full Fjord, just tall and narrow! He apparently used to event and was a terrible eventer... rumor has it that he just crashed through the whole course

He's a fantastic therapy horse- he's our steady eddy. He was easier to train for therapeutic riding than any horse I've ever worked with. Stellar is a big goofball and the kids all love his mane!

Ijust want to thank you for rescueing those beautiful fjords from the auction who would have gone to be horribly tortured and killed for meat trade, otherwise. You are doing God's work by what you did. Thank you! Cute babies! How are they all doing now? Were the fjords broke to ride?

We didn't canter because she had so many bad experiences with trainers who had no Fjord experience, but her trot was super smooth! I used to ride her bareback all the time.

I just wish Fjords weren't so expensive in the US! I'll need to save up $5k minimum if I want a well trained one.
kEEP READING ON THIS post....someone rescued two perfectly good fjords from auction by outbidding the MEAT/kILL BUYER!!! Can you believe these wonderful ancient breed horses are being sent to slaughter?? I would check around auctions for fjords you will, unfortunately, find some great ones who are great age and training/condition and can save a life, as well.

Here are a few pics of my last Fjord, I sold him and I regret it everyday!













This was just typical him, always had to test the rider :p








I could go on with pictures forever but I think i'll stop now :p
he is gorgeous what are his bloodlines? Where did he end up? He looks like a fantastic all around fjord! Not to mention..he's really a good looking fjord, lovely head and eye.

Mattresses are on sale this time of year.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
