Submitted by Jennifer Karpowicz: Echo Valley Ally, Pacific Northwest. Cleaned up at Training Level this year. Next year we will be going after those First and Second Level scores for my USDF Bronze Medal. I love her so much that I'm hooked on the breed and purchased an awesome two year old Fjord I can't wait to develop.
fabled Norwegian Fjord! We are celebrating these horses as our October Breed of the Month on YourDressage! We recently asked our social media followers to share a photo of their favorite Fjord or Fjord cross for a chance to be featured in a gallery highlighting these wonderfully versatile horses on YourDressage! We will be sharing stories and galleries all month long from folks who love this breed.
Did you know that dressage riders who choose a Norwegian Fjord as their dressage mount are eligible for special awards through the Adequan®/
USDF All-Breeds Awards program, as the Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry is a participating organization?

Eva has been my partner for 10 years. She came into my life as an almost 4 yo. I originally purchased her with the idea of breaking and flipping her, but her beautiful, doey eyes captured my soul. She has spent her life with me as both my own personal mount and a great teacher for students ranging from rank beginner to 1st level. I ride her at second level. My Tiny Titan captures hearts wherever she goes with her relaxed floppy ears and intense twitching lips signaling her complete immersion in the task at hand. – Stacy G.
My young fjord mare from France 🙂 Still learning but she is learning really quick 🙂 – Cynthia A.
