Fjord Ponies

The Fjord is an ancient type of pony resembling Przewalski's Horse, which may well have been its ancestor. Its coloring and markings are primitive, and it is a true representative of the Celtic pony group. It has a kind willing nature, but some are said to be stubborn. It is very strong and tough, and has great stamina. The Fjord is a sure footed and fearless mountain pony. It is still used for plowing on rough terrain, but is more popular as a trekking pony. It also takes part in Fjord trotting races, long distance events, and competitive driving. Fjord ponies stand about 13 to 14 hands high.
