The Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry sponsored a seminar at the Norwegian Fjord stallion evaluations in Nordfjordied, Norway, in May 2001.  Sandy and Beth attended the evaluations, Beth as an evaluator trainee, and Sandy as an auditor.  The trip was informative and fun.   We saw numerous beautiful Fjord Horses (we were sorely tempted to purchase, but alas, the ones we wanted weren't available) and really got feel for how the Norwegian landscape shaped the Norwegian Fjord Horse.  Here are some photos of our favorite sights and, of course, horses.
