Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry
Pedigree Search Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the data come from?

The data in the on-line pedigree search system is taken directly from the database that the Registrar uses to run the NFHR. The on-line data is updated from the master database periodically. The date and time it was last updated appears at the bottom of each page of the pedigree search system.

What if I notice a mistake in my horse's data?

If there's a mistake in the data, inform the Registrar by e-mail. Be sure to specify your horse's NFHR registration number in your message. The Registrar will change the master database, and the on-line database will be corrected the next time it is updated.

How do I get data added to the database?

If you want to add data (for example, missing horses to fill out your horse's pedigree), send the relevant information to the Registrar. Information like this requires supporting documentation such as a page out of a foreign studbook, or a signed letter from a foreign registrar.

Why do some horses have pictures?

The pedigree search system can display pictures of the horses in the database, but the pictures do not come from the database. Instead, you, the horse owner, can upload the pictures to the system.

How can I get my horse's pictures on here?

To upload pictures, click on the Upload Photos link which appears at the bottom of all the pedigree search system pages. You will be asked to log on by typing your NFHR Member ID, and a Password. This is required to ensure that only you can upload pictures of your horse.

How do I find out my Password?

If you don't know your ID or Password, enter your phone number with area code (the digits only) in the Member ID field and then press the Login button. If your e-mail address is on file, your Member ID and Password will be e-mailed to you. Otherwise, please contact the Registrar at

How do I upload more than one picture for my horse?

You can have up to three photos for each horse. One of these is displayed large, and the other two are displayed smaller beneath the first one. Once you are on the Photo Upload page, use the "Photo" field to select which photo position (Top Large, Left Hand Small, or Right Hand Small) you are uploading.

Why do only some of my horses' names appear when I log on to upload photos?

If only some of your horses appear when you log on, it is most likely because you have more than one Member ID. For example, you may have some horses registered under your name, and some under both yours and your spouse's name. As long as all the registrations share the same phone number, requesting your Member ID and Password will cause all your Member IDs and their Passwords to be e-mailed to you. So if you can't find one of your horses under one of your Member IDs, try the other Member IDs. If you still can't find all your horses, please contact the Registrar at

Can I sort the search results by something other than the horse name?

Yes. Each column heading in the search result is actually a link. If you click on a column heading, the search results will be redisplayed, sorted by that column. If you are several pages down in a multi-page result, the display starts over with page one. The Sort Indicator symbol indicates which column the report is currently sorted by.

What does the Progeny column mean on the Progeny report?

The Progeny column in each row of the Progeny report shows the number of Progeny of the horse in that row. If you click on the number, you will get a Progeny report for that horse.

What do all the letters, numbers, and symbols after some horses' names mean?

These are terms describing the horse's results in various European evaluation programs. Please refer to this Pedigree Terminology document for details.
