Do you like Icelandic horses? Well, here’s a chance to see lots of them!
The opening ceremony of Landsmot 2006 from a viewpoint that is, well, unusual.
It’s long, about 20 minutes. You did say you liked Icelandic horses, didn’t you? Kick back and enjoy!
And notice how well-behaved the horses are, all packed together, standing still, waiting for the parade to start. That alone is impressive!
Oh, in case you are totally unfamiliar with Iceland or have spent the last few years on the planet Mars and need to know who is leading this procession, she is none other than Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir, Miss World 2006. Obviously, she really does ride!
There are several people I have gotten to know through the Icelandic horse who are in Hestakaup.com and have passed on. One of them, my teacher as well as friend, Reynir Adelsteinsson, has a special place of honor in the procession.
