ODIN. 2007 Dun Fjord Horse gelding for sale. 14.1HH, 950lbs. He was born May 28, 2007 at 5pm. Gelded when he was a year old. Both parents were imported directly from Denmark.
Odin was enrolled in and finished a 4 month John Lyons Ground Control class, and has had 60 days full training under saddle in addition to that. He has done everything from arena work, to 3+ hour trail rides, and has been taken over a few small fences. He has been ridden in a dressage saddle, huntseat saddle, western saddle, and bareback, and in both dressage and western bridles and bits. This horse has a sweet personality, a calm demeanor, and has been exposed to a LOT already. Point and shoot, you could take him in ANY direction from here. Quite a looker! Always get compliments from other riders…Great with other horses, but can also go out on trail alone with no problems. Not pushy on the ground, and will follow you wherever you go! Very curious personality. Will stand for farrier (He is barefoot, has STRONG hooves), crossties, loads, UTD on wormer, farrier, shots, teeth, etc.

History on the breed:
The Fjord horse is one of the world's oldest and purest breeds. Horses were known to exist in Norway at the end of the last ice age. It is believed that the ancestors of the modern Fjord horse migrated to Norway and were domesticated over 4,000 years ago. Archaeological excavations at Viking burial sites indicate that the Fjord horse type has been selectively bred for at least 2,000 years. The Fjord horse and its ancestors have been used for hundreds of years as farm animals in western Norway. Even as late as World War II, they were useful for work in mountainous terrain. The Fjord horse also has a long recorded history of pure breeding without crossbreeding from other sources.
