Fjord horses are one of the oldest horse breeds in the world. They are believed to be related to Przewalski (primitive Asiatic Wild Horses), but their exact origin is unclear. The Vikings used Fjord horses as their war mounts. Spending many centuries in mountainous terrain resulted in Fjord horses developing into a strong, sure-footed horse, well adapted to the severe weather conditions needing very little care. They proved to be the perfect pack horse on mountain trails and well suit for light draught work on hilly farms.

The first Fjord horse stud book was published in 1910. The Fjord horse is very popular in Denmark and can also be found in Germany and England.
