Fjords running barrels! (...that's what my face looked like, too.)
I went to a local horse show yesterday and I saw a couple of Fjords. They were amazingly pretty. But once the barrel class started and I realized these two Fjords were going to be running barrels, I laughed.

...And they rocked it! Holy crap. I was surprised. :shock: They were better than half the quarter horses in the show. haha

Just thought I'd share this and see what other people thought.

Wow i wish i could've seen that. i've never seen or heard of a fjord running speed events. But that just goes to show that horses can be trained to do anything and shouldn't really be sterotyped.

I bet they probobably wouldn't make it to the pro level, but that's really cool! I've seen some mules doing barrels :P

I can't imagine my Fjord doing barrels lol! But good on them

What the flip? Fjords? I guess what I've been told is true. Fjords are the world's most versatile horses.:D

I've seen them running events as well. They're really no different than any youth pony out there running.

And might I ad that these were some...well-fed Fjords. Big chubby teddy bears. =D

My fjord does gymkhana, reining, and coleadero. They are an extremely versatile breed. And soo much fun! :)

When I was showing alot, back in my hometown area, there were a couple of Fjord horses that gamed...they were darn good at it too! :D

Fjords are good at anything! We've got a Fjord here that jumps 1.30 against other warmbloods. And a few that are quite high in cross country. They are good in anything!
