Lynge-Tora a Norwegian Fjord horse from Ovre-Eide Farm
Bergen, Norway Horseback Riding Vacation
As we rode past the centuries old cemetery, lined with neatly marked tombstones and flowers, the horses hooves clipped clopped along the path. We began the assent of the forested trail and left the World Heritage City of Bergen behind us. The rugged Norwegian Fjord horses moved quietly along the fern-laced trail as we gained elevation.
We passed natural lakes created from snow melt run off and a few abandoned military bunkers; silent remembrances of World War II. Norwegian mother’s pushed baby strollers along the paved path. It was a lovely summer day, ideal for a horseback riding vacation in Bergen, Norway.
