On my Iceland Adventure, I told my companions that I couldn’t go home without photographs of the Icelandic horses because my husband wouldn’t let me in the door without them. We had two opportunities the last day of the trip, and the horses didn’t disappoint.
These special horses are a pure breed. No other horses are allowed in the country, and if one is purchased and removed, it cannot return. They are smaller in stature with luxurious manes, and they have a special gait called the TOLT. Watch this youtube video of this gait, and notice that the rider is not moving at all despite the speed of the horse.
Here are the photos I took that got me back into my home after the trip. Enjoy these beautiful creatures.
