fjord

  1. Horse Training
    I have been working with Alvin, a very naughty fjord who has been sitting for far too long. I've been riding him bareback in a halter, mostly because he is literally too big for all of the saddles and bits available but also because I want him to listen to me and not a bit etc.. just a personal...
  2. Horse Grooming
    this is a little (about a WEEK) late but I chopped my baby boys mane into some hearts for Valentines day - but it looked better on Pinterest....
  3. New to Horses
    hi :^) I'm a student in central Iowa and a job at a horse barn was pretty much dropped into my lap from the heavens (my mom's friend Pam) after I expressed interest in riding again. I'm a little bit rusty, but I've been riding a little morgan named Fritz and an obscenely overweight fjord named...
  4. Horse Talk
    I decided to finally buy my first horse, and I really want a Fjord since they've always been my favourite. But problem is, I live in a very hot country, the average temperature during summer (aprox June-September) is 90F/30C degrees, and during the season's peak it can get to 100F/40C degrees...
  5. Horse Breeds
    Hey all! I will be getting a horse in a few years and am trying to do my research now. I love Norwegian Fjords and feel that their general breed temperament is a good match for my riding style. I would also love a versatile horse that can do both riding and pulling. My only question is- is...
  6. Horse Breeds
    So, I have this senior spotted gelding. Now, I've always been fascinated with his mane, but it wasn't until yesterday when I was FINALLY bringing him in from the pasture that I realized Fjords have the same type of mane. Now, maybe it's just Chief being a special guy, or maybe he really does...
  7. Dressage
    Hullo, folks. Recorded this ride today to assess a potential lameness issue in my horse and realised I would like some feedback on my own self. Please mute your computers as my men bicker and add commentary that's for my own amusement, the Wonderful Turds. It's been well over a year since my...
  8. Horses for Sale
    I'm selling my 9 year old Norwegian Fjord mare. I've had her since she was 7 months but she's matured with a very drafty build and is too wide for me (I'm 5'2"). She is a good trail horse, backs well, and side-passes. She has ridden in groups and around wagons, has been around ATVs, tractors...
  9. Horse Breeding
    Do any of you know anyone who breeds fjord mules in New England? or at all? I think they are gorgeous and I really want one! I had a fjord, but she passed away of colic and I love donkeys. I saw the fjord mule and I thought that it would be perfect! (: Just wondering if you guys know anything...
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm making my first horse purchase in ten days (pending a PPE)! Hooray! I'm not exactly a beginner--I've leased twice in the past and, after fooling around with horses for a couple of years (just trail rides, stupid teenager stuff like running as fast as we could across open meadows--I shudder...
  11. Horse Breeds
    I know he's a fjord cross, but i'd love to know you guys' opinion on what he's crossed with!!! he's about 16 hh
  12. Horse Breeds
    I like fjords. What about you people?
  13. Horse Pictures
    Well, you haven't met my pony yet?! Now you will. I'm not aloud to ride on him untill next year spring. He has ripped one of his muscles while jumping. These photo's were taken in august I think.
