The Icelandic Horse

If you ever get the chance to meet an Icelandic horse, you're in for a treat. They're not very tall, but don't let their size fool you—these horses are tough and energetic. It’s their friendly nature that really wins you over, though. They have this special gait called the tölt; it's so smooth, it almost feels like you're floating when you ride them. Plus, they come in all sorts of colors, which just adds to their charm. Out here, they're not just horses; they’re part of the family and a proud symbol of our heritage.

Five Gaits of the Icelandic Horse

The Icelandic horse is unique with five natural gaits: the walk, trot, and canter, plus the smooth tölt and the fast-paced flying pace, each offering a distinct and comfortable riding experience.
