This kid found a wonderful horse right there in her dad’s barn. Happened to be one of the top evaluated stallions in Iceland. And one of her neighbors just happens to be Mette Manseth, of Hólar. Ingunn is on her way to being a fine rider, to say the least, but watch her have fun learning!
In 2000 there was a show in Vermont with a great costume class.
For Americans of a certain age, this could be the Art Linkletter School of Icelandic Horseback Riding! The kids are a riot but these horses put up with it all. In fact, they steal the show. I think that this is one of the greatest selling points for the breed.
A Slide Show Sit back and enjoy!
On any Spring weekend in Iceland, in any city or town, you will find people at their local riding clubs fiddling around with their horses, riding in friendly training shows and sometimes in engaging in fierce competition. What follows is a video visit to Dreyri, the club in Akranes.
An Icelandic breeding horse evaluation held under ideal circumstances at Mill Farm in 2006. Lots of young horses were introduced. And so was a young rider!
