Viking horses were probably the most hardy ones found in the entire world, they could plough through any terrain in any weather carrying a heavy Scandinavian on their backs. Norwegian fjord horses descend from their Viking ancestors. Horse riding is a year-round activity, but is seems a bit unreasonable to ride the strong jumpers in dry summer time, when they can endure much more. Severe snowy season stretching from November to March allows the riders to try everything the Norwegian horses are capable of.
