Fjord Horse Experience Highlights
Owner, Ironwood Farm, Rixeyville, VA 12//98 to present. Ironwood Farm is the largest Fjord horse breeding and sales operation in Virginia. We have produced over 60 registered foals and sold over 100 Fjords (own breeding and consignments). All our horses are registered. Many of our horses are evaluated and several have earned the NFHR Hall of Fame designation. We show our Fjords in recognized and unrecognized eventing and dressage competitions winning many awards. Several of our horses have earned the NFHR Register of Excellence and Versatility Awards. I have been an NFHR member since 2000 and active in the Fjord community.
