Fjord Horse International's mission is to host an international forum of member countries around the world


On this page you will find articles about breeding, use and regulations in the different countries where the beautiful Fjord Horse lives.

Because history and earlier work in the FjHI is important for the future…
Because we want to remember… and learn about the work and experience of former involved persons…
Because we enjoy to be together around the same objectives…

Three speakers were invited and in complement for each other, they all three were presenting very interesting information to the international guests, present in Stryn this year !
First Judith Hegrenes took us back in time with pictures of the old days, showing us that international interest existed a long long time ago!
Arne Presthus explained how and for what reasons the international company was established, 20 years ago, and why the company became an organization.
Eike Schön-Peterson talked about the origin and background of the significant “Official Handbook for Fjord Horse Judges”. A guide to be used by every Fjord Horse breeder, user, evaluator, judge.

If you were in Stryn, you certainly want to hear it again. If you couln’t be inStryn, you have to discover it now !

We are pleased to announce the results of the FHNSA of GB Annual Jennifer Murray Perpetual Memorial Trophy Competition 2016/17.
This competition is growing yearly. The number of entries this year at it's highest level.
The competition was judged by Catriona Murray , daughter of the well known and respected breeder, owner and judge of fjord horses, the late Jennifer Murray. Catriona was as always assisted by her judging panel who were upped to four this year by the inclusion of a 'seen it all' veteran show judge. Judging was based on results achieved and compiled throughout the show season including the early part of 2017 and includes riding,driving & showing disciplines which individually were judged by qualified panel judges at established recognised shows & events throughout the year.
The purpose of the JMP trophy, apart from enjoyment and fun is to promote the Fjord horse as being capable of winning/ being well placed at quality showing, riding or driving events throughout the UK. Our competitors told us that classes have this year been won against tough competition from top class horses, which again proves the high quality of our UK fjord horses.
We are all so very proud of our winners and their fjord horses and hope if you agree you will give encouragement and a 'like' to our page and to this article and it's follow ups.

1st Hesta ridden by Meghan Smith
2nd Femke II owned by Stacey Jury, ridden by Stephanie
3rd Gaia ridden by Shuna Mardon
4th Ausdan Karin ridden by Michaela McGrath
5th Alexi ridden by Jodie Smith
6th Ausdan Lakris led/owned by Di Lynch

Our winners and entrants have put tremendous effort into a season of hard work and early mornings. Presenting both horse and rider/handler in a well groomed, immaculate state is hard work & is essential for correct showing etiquette.
Well done to all our participants both placed and unplaced. Catrona has this year doubled her published results list as the quality was so high that choice between especially the first three was very difficult and extremely close. So much so that if there was such a thing as joint first it would have been exactly that. The panel were also impressed with the 6th placed rookie newcomer Di Lynch's young colt Ausdan Lakris who was in the ribbons on his first ever outing. Already we have been getting in results of this year's/early next year's shows and it looks like there is a 2017 friendly battle for the coveted trophy brewing.


Jennifer Murray 2016 17 Trophy

The Trials of Torrin… And success at Coyote Ridge!
By Michael Sabatini

Torrin was born April 14, 2006 at “Trinity Fjords” in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Torrin was neither the first, nor the last fjord which I purchased from “Trinity Fjords”. In all, I have six Trinity offspring, including Torrin’s full sister Alexi, as well as two of Torrin’s half-brothers, Trinity’s Strauss and Trinity’s Bach. I have heard fjord owners say that “you can’t have just one fjord” – much like potato chips or M&M’s; however, this was not the motivation for filling my barn with Trinity offspring. My long-term goal was to drive and compete with a four-in-hand and most team drivers have at least one spare horse. I felt that horses that shared similar breeding , or even better horses that were related, would be easier to work as a team, as they would have similar movement. Torrin, however, is proof that horses are living creatures with minds of their own…
