Fjord Horse  Breed Profile

Size, Color & Unique Qualities

The Norwegian Fjord horse is a true example of “small but mighty.”  They have the strong muscle and thick bones of a draft horse

The only coat color you will find on a Fjord horse is dun (a light, dusty tan or blonde with dark legs and a dark dorsal stripe down the spine)

Fjords are also very gentle and do not spook easily, making them typically safe horses to be around children when properly trained.

In World War II, Fjords served as warhorses, prized for their ability to work over treacherous mountain terrain.

Fjord horse still puts its strength to use with heavy work, including plowing fields and hauling.
