Geldings

As a breeding farm, we are most interested in mares and stallions, but appreciate geldings.  A gelding will show the quality of a line in performance and temperament.   We have found that Fjord geldings are similar to Fjord mares in their behavior and suitability for various riders and activities.

Ironwood Roheryn - SALE PENDING

Red Dun Gelding, DOB:  4/2/2009, 14.2 hands

Sire: Ironwood Blitzen S1, G1, V, E  Dam:  Lupin, S1, G1, V, E, HOF

Roheryn is a well trained Fjord who has been in regular work with a professional trainer for the past 3 years.  He is a tall, full bodied Fjord with a pleasant personality.  He likes having a job. Has been evaluated by his breed registry and is microchipped.

Roheryn is showing in low level eventing this year.  He has done well at dressage shows, combined tests and starter horse trials (7 firsts and 1 second) against open competition.  He has earned good year end awards for his show results in the last two years. He successfully moved up to Beginner Novice this May by winning his division at the Maryland Horse Trials. He has continued his winning ways at Kelly’s Ford Horse Trials.  He was 6th at the USEA recognized CDCTA Horse Trial in a very competitive division.

He jumps ditches, banks, and natural obstacles.  He crosses water.  He earned his NFHR Silver Medallion of Quality in English riding in 2015.  He also has successfully completed two NFHR Bronze level tests.  Roheryn is a Fjord with a documented performance record and experience.

Roh is a drafty type Fjord and well suited to a larger adult.  He is good inside and outside the ring; handles new places and situations very well.  He is for an intermediate rider who is solid at all gaits, with a good dressage foundation, and experienced riding more forward and expressive types. Roh  is not for novices or beginners, but would be an excellent partner for a bold, pony club-type teen rider, or adult looking for a fresh athlete in a smaller package.   

There are few Fjords available for sale that have Roheryn’s training, performance record and abilities.

Ironwood Edvard Elrik

Red Dun Gelding, DOB 3/22/16, Should Mature to over 14 hands

Sire:   Blitzen S1, G1, V, E  Dam: Wood’s Else

Edvard is a red dun gelding from this first time pairing of Blitzen and the blue ribbon confirmation mare Wood’s Else,  We are very pleased with the result. Edvard is an elegant modern type with conformation suited for dressage and eventing. Gelded, registered and weaned,  Edvard stands 13 hands and should mature to over 14 hands.  He leads, stands for the farrier and enjoys being groomed.  If he stays to long, we may be tempted to break our no gelding rule.  He really is NICE.  UTD on shots, worming and Coggins. 

Price: $3500
