The Norwegian Fjord Horse is a Norwegian breed with deep roots in the Nordfjord region and in Western Norway. It is one of three Norwegian national horse breeds, and is considered Norway’s national breed.
The Norwegian Fjord Horse Centre runs activities all year round and is a permanent teaching venue for Fjordane Folk High School. In spring and summer, there is a lot of activity at the artificial insemination centre, where mares from all over Norway are inseminated with semen from good Fjord horse stallions.
We welcome everyone who want to come by to talk about horses or see our facilities. Our activities vary depending on how many horses are at pasture and other tasks at the centre. We can tailor arrangements and times for groups.
The Norwegian Fjord Horse Centre is a resource centre for the Fjord horse and runs an information and advice service for all matters relating to this all-Norwegian horse breed. One of the centre’s main functions is to promote the breeding and use of the Fjord horse. Many courses are held at the centre throughout the year, and Fjordane Folk High School’s horse programmes use the premises for teaching activities.
