Fjord Horse International's mission is to host an international forum of member countries around the world


On this page you will find articles about breeding, use and regulations in the different countries where the beautiful Fjord Horse lives.

Attending: Jochen, Maureen, Jan, Leif and Jenny.

1) Maureen: Norway has no vet card from the stallion show. The vet check is a part of the show report but does not contain all the points of a vet card. We have the judge book and the vet card so we must use it, to make it easier to sell horses across borders. Jenny will talk with Norsk Hestesenter and the board of NFL about this matter.

2) Jenny Barnes, NFHR, North America, wrote an e-mail asking for information about the stallion licensing and more in the countries Denmark, Germany, Holland and Norway. We all answer our best. Send to Jenny Johnsen and I will send it to Jenny Barnes.

3) Eike Schön-Petersen gave his support to the inbreeding research of Norway: “Within the German IGF, I would believe that we can motivate breeders to provide blood samples for a wider research project, extending the genomic analysis, the foundation of which has been laid.” Jenny will follow this up with Norsk Hestesenter, Norsk Fjordhestsenter and the researchers at the Agricultural university.
Jan and Leif announce that in their country there is already a proactive DNA collection based on hair samples (not via blood) for a possible follow-up to the research that has already been conducted with Norway and Sweden.

4) In Belgium, double hair samples will be taken from all foals from this year, one of which is reserved for FHI.

5) I will write an article from the GA of Norges Fjordhestlag, 9th October. This year it was connected to the Haustmøtet (autumn meeting), involving lectures in many topics. People are really hoping to see each other and you all at Nordfjordeid next year. Fingers crossed! 

6) Our next meeting: Monday 9th Nov 21.00
