As one of the world’s oldest and purest breeds, the Fjord’s history dates back over 4,000 years to the Vikings of Norway who cherished this special breed as a farming and war horse.
Over the years, Norwegian families carefully bred Fjords on small farms for generations to cultivate those qualities which they most loved about their horses: courage, kindness, strength and versatility.
Today Norwegian Fjord horses excel in every equestrian discipline. Fjords can be found winning at horse shows, working in therapy programs, farming fields and ascending mountains. Fjord horses are very people-oriented, extremely trainable, and one of the few breeds that possess such true versatility.
