The front cover of the Nov 2012 Flying Changes magazine shows the cutest, most adorablest little war horse. Nothing inside about her other than her name is Nel, a Norwegian Fjiord, owner is Anne Appleby.
Has anyone seen this cutey in the flesh?
No info here but it is an adorable picture. It makes me think of my friends 1st level gypsy vanner. So much "try" in that photo.
Anne Appleby is pretty famous for her dressage fjords :)
She owned Wez, an FEI Fjord in the 90's. He is here
And the Fjord pictured on the magazine cover, Nel, is written about in this article here
If she showed at the Whidbey Trials this year, I think I saw her (Nel).
I have seen her in the flesh, and yes, she is that adorable!
I don't know them personally, but took pictures at a couple of the Equestrian's Institute shows this summer and I've got some of Nel in the slideshow on my home page - they are about 15 pictures in and there are quite a few of them all the way through (sorry, it's a long slideshow!)
Don't know if it's the right horse/rider but there are videos on YouTube of Fjords doing dressage
pretty impressive! :)
Great links, Wez was one handsome guy! I know a woman in La Grande that competes in driving events with her Fjiords. Tough little horses.
