The horses

Get to know our horses

We place great importance on our horses having a good temperament, and that they are diverse when it comes to their looks, abilities and character. After all, our guest’s experiences vary, and while some have never been on a horse before, others are advanced riders. We try our best to find a horse that suits the skill level of each and every rider individually. So, come now and get to know our horses in person while riding on one of the prettiest tracks in the country.

Important

Disinfection instructions from the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority

Importing horses to Iceland is strictly forbidden. Due to the isolation of the country and the import ban, the Icelandic horse has been lucky enough to avoid most of the diseases horses in other countries can be inflicted with. Importation of used tackle, riding clothes or anything else which may be used around horses is also strictly forbidden unless it has been disinfected in accordance with law. See further on the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority’s website.

We care deeply about our horses and the Icelandic horse breed. Please help us maintain the health of the Icelandic horse and respect rules regarding the disinfection of tackle and riding clothes.
