Iceland Horse Riding Holidays
Extremely sure-footed and strong, Icelandic horses are able to navigate tough terrain and have a unique ‘tolt’ gait. Combined with a gentle, friendly disposition and eagerness to please, this breed is a delight for anyone to ride, no matter what level of experience.
The Icelandic horse is a breed apart, descended from stock brought over by settlers some 1100 years ago. Since then, stringent import controls have restricted other breeds from entering the country, maintaining the lineage of this unique horse as the purest in the world.
Exploring Iceland’s breathtaking scenery on horseback is an exhilarating way of experiencing the fantastic landscapes and heightens the sense of magnificence. Quite simply, the Icelandic horse is a wonder of the equine world and to ride a ‘Viking’ horse in its native land is more than a privilege.
