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 :-P and has a tendancy to lie down in the snow when you're riding her :lol:

Cute pics...what kind of horse is the black one is that a fjord cross?

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.
