Absolutely Adorable Registered Super Stocky Fjord Gelding Rides and Drives
If this isnât one of the most adorable Norwegian Fjord geldings Iâve ever seen than I honestly donât know what is. I grew up with Fjords and this guy is so much the gelding I adored as a kid, itâs not even funny. Meet Olav a 5 year old 14.3 hand dun Norwegian Fjord gelding. He is registered with the NFHR. This guy is built like the older foundation fjords were built. Very baroque, thick neck, big boned, a gorgeous head and big kind eyes. Olav May look just like my Gelding did but he rides 10x better and my gelding was 3x his age. This guy is so safe, quiet and so willing. I absolutely adore fjords but many can be unwilling, strong and pushy. He is none of those things. Olav is very willing under saddle. He does ride with more whoa than go but he does what you ask of him with no hesitation or resistance. He is big enough for any size rider and takes up a lot of leg with how stout he is. He is on the bigger size and a perfect size in my opinion. In the picture with the balloons that rider is 6ft tall. This guy rides in English and western tack. The only thing he does not do is neck rein. He has slow, smooth, very comfortable gaits. Moves off leg, has good brakes, rides in snaffle, stops, stands, backs, has great transitions, knows his leads and will canter right off from a walk. He will canter circles on the correct lead And I have found that can be quite hard to find in this breed. Olav respects kids and does not get strong if a kid is on his back. He will also ride bareback and is like sitting on a couch. We have ridden him double to. Now for the best part, we cannot find anything that rattles him. I donât like to call one spook proof but heâs pretty darn close. He doesnât care about balls, tarps, Mylar balloons, blowers, flags and so much more. This guy is a great sport And you can do anything to or on him. He will ride in your garage or house if you want him to. This guy is so fun and so cool to have around. He always has his ears forward and heâs the most happy go lucky guy youâll meet. Olav is the true definition of this breed and a great example of what the breed is. He would be an exceptional addition to any therapy program for riding and driving. Olav is great on the trails and goes wherever you point him with zero hesitation. Road, car, tractor, 4 wheeler, dog, garabage cans, deers donât phase him. We have even lead the dog around while sitting on his back. He will ride out alone and is not barn or buddy sour at all. We have let him sit a week without riding him and he is the same horse. No reason or need to lunge him. Heâs willing enough to work daily to and would be a good asset to a lesson program. Olav is super sweet And in your pocket with no vices what so ever. This guy has always been well cared for and it shows. Super sweet and always the first one to meet you at the gate. Extremely easy keeper and stays fat on air. Olav is barefoot and has excellent big, hard, blk hooves. This gelding had 90 days of professional driving training and is very well broke to drive to. We have just ridden him since we donât have the cart and harness to drive him with. Up to date on everything, 100% sound and no vices what so ever. If you are in the market for a Fjord Olav is exceptional. These horses get harder and harder to find everyday and you just donât see many on the market so donât pass up this opportunity especially for a good, young, sound gelding with his whole life ahead of him. Heâs in perfect health with no bumps, lumps, or pimples on him anywhere. Clean legged and ready to go to his new home. No maintenance and no supplements what so ever. He lives inside or out happily. Gets along with all other horses or he can be pastured by himself with no issues. Respects board fence with no electric. A great horse to own and have around the barn. We had friends visit last weekend that havenât ridden and years and he was our go to guy. Located in Allentown NJ 08501. Be sure to check out his very thorough video that shows how great this guy really is. We spent a lot of time making this video so you can see how amazing this gelding truly is.
