Horse Illustrated Magazine – The FJORD Factor

by Lori Albrough


Hey Fjord fans, you’ll want to rush right out and pick up the March 2014 issue of Horse Illustrated magazine!

The cover says “Meet the Norwegian Fjord” (with a sweet Fjord face peering out of a sidebar photo) and that’s just what you’ll do in journalist Samantha Johnson’s article, “The FJORD Factor”.

The tagline reads: Find out just how much fun you can have with a Norwegian Fjord, and it’s so true. The article focuses on the versatility of our all-purpose breed and it’s universal appeal, featuring Fjord horses and their owners competing in dressage, jumping, and driving.

Interviews with several Fjord experts (including yours truly, pictured training with our stallion Mogly in Wellington Florida) discuss the experience of those who are out competing with Fjords and how the animals are received in open competition.

There are sections on the colours of the Fjord, Fjords in the Disney movie Frozen, and Fjords in the 2014 Rose Parade. Great job, Horse Illustrated!

Oh, how I love it when Fjords are in the news.

    Thank you for sharing this information. I went right out to purchase the March Horse Illustrated just for this article. The only disappointing thing about it was that it could have been longer with more pictures, but that could be just me, a Fjord junkie.

    Thanks for being such a reliable Fjord reference, Lori, I’ve got your blog bookmarked.

    Thanks Karen! I’m the same way, an article about Fjords can always be longer 🙂 It was nice to see photos from new (to me) photographers.
