Im from Norway, and love our fjord horses. I can only tell you about the norvegian type since they are bred differently in other parts of the world, but they are indeed amazing horses. They are strong both in mind and body, have a robust body, good health and are probably one of the worlds best all-round horses. They are up to anything! In Norway, no animal that isnt gentle are taken out of the breeding program, no matter how good it may be, this to ensure that the breed stays gentle. They are just as perfect to beginners as they are to more advanced riders. But it does not give you anything for free, you get exanctly what you are asking for, nothing less, nothing more, so in other words, the fjord is just as good as you. Norway got two other native breeds that are superb! The dole is a bigger horse, wery beautiful, gentle and healty. The northern pony (nordlandshest/lyngshest) is a old horsebreed (some say just as old as the fjord, but it has not been proven)and is realy goodlooking and cute :) I love our norwegian horses :D

Hi! I was wondering if appaloosa's would be good for barrel racing. Please reply!

    Yes, the Appaloosa can be very adept at barrel racing. Barrel racing is a sport that became part of rodeos to show off the skills of cattle horses. These horses are able to turn very sharply when needed  (and maintain speed) for herding cattle.  Although the quarter horse is the breed usually identified with this, the Appaloosa can be very competitive. Some say they are a bit harder to train, but others ademantely dispute that claim.

I have a two year old and she is the love of my life. She is so sweet and loving to me. However when I'm not around people say she always bites or kicks them but she never does when I'm around. She also has social issues because where I bought her from she was kept in a round pen for her life. How can I solve her issues? I also heard having two year olds are dangerous and unpredictable especially Appaloosa's. I do not want to sell her shes my baby ♥ any advice?

    What a great horse to have! It sounds like you have a good relationship with her. Don't have any ideas about her social issues, but I'm not sure that it matters how she is with others unless you have to make sure they have a good relationship with her too. As she is young, it may be that she needs time for adjustment and to know what to expect in her home. Good luck.

These horses are so fun to ride and watch in the show ring! The way they pick up their feet so high is amazing!

Could someone please tell me if TBs(thoroughbreds) or WBs (warmbloods) are better show jumpers, and who are better all-rounders? Thank-you, Olivia

    I think WBs are slightly better jumpers but they both make good all rounders. This is just from my own experiences though...
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-01-27
    If I understand the info correctly the throughbreds are bred from defined warmbloods for specific sport whether racing or jumping so I would go on the basis of what the actual pony is bred for. Thoughbreds are normally bred for a sport. All rounders in handling riding personality is dependent on ancestry and breeding. Easier to judge by the parental linage. Hope this helps.

    WBs=jumpers TBs=all-rounders
  • ed - 2012-02-15
    I am not sure on on who might be the better jumper but I now my throughbred trusts me and he would jump any thing I would ask him to and he would cross any river. I would hope I would know his limits.
  • shaby - 2012-08-20
    this is my opinion is that wb are better at show jumping and tbs are better at rounder

    TBs are often crossed with Irish Draughts to make Irish Sport Horses which are excellent all rounders and fantastic jumpers.
