Talking 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. 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 got summer hating on me cause I'm hotter than the sun. Win-ter hating on me cause I'm colder than ya'll. I'm being hated by the seasons so forget ya'll who hating for no reason!

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

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

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!
