Full Moon Farm breeds, trains and sells Norwegian Fjord Horses on a beautiful 138 acre farm in the heart of New Jersey horse country. We have between 20 - 28 Fjords of all ages on the property, and are one of the largest Fjord breeders in North America. Fjords are friendly, smart and people-oriented, making them a joy to work with. Many of our horses live out 24/7 in pastures with sheds and automatic waterers. We inseminate via AI and live cover; we usually have one or two stallions on the property. We do ground training and socialization here; most of the horses are sent to my trainer for training under saddle and competing. We are located approximately an hour from New York City and Philadelphia, and our local towns of Lambertville, NJ and New Hope PA are full of great restaurants and unique shops. In addition to year-round horse shows of every kind, we have a multitude of other entertainments available , from theater to concerts to just about any kind of festival you can imagine.
