Fjord horses are one of thernoldest horse breeds in the world. They are believed to be related to Przewalskirn(primitive Asiatic Wild Horses), but their exact origin is unclear. The Vikingsrnused Fjord horses as their war mounts. Spending many centuries in mountainousrnterrain resulted in Fjord horses developing into a strong, sure-footed horse,rnwell adapted to the severe weather conditions needing very little care. Theyrnproved to be the perfect pack horse on mountain trails and well suit for lightrndraught work on hilly farms.

rnrnThe first Fjord horse studrnbook was published in 1910. The Fjord horse is very popular in Denmarkrnand can also be found in Germany and England.
