Icelandic horses have a very smooth gait, their a gaited horse, their "tolt' gait is amazing.
One of my friends horses, named Juni, was the Icelandic horse of the year in his day, he was born there, he's now about 30.
He's so sweet. I think I'll put his picture up in members photos.

Hi ctbard, what a wonderful horse indeed.
Very sturdy,the Mongols use to ride a similar kind of horse and even today's tribes in the mountains, that's the kind of horse they still rides for it's sturdiness and stamina for long distance in rough terrain.

Hi lady of Avalon. I rode Connemarra ponies in Ireland and was a bit nervous as I hadn't ridden for years and certainly didn't want an injury miles from home. No worries at all. The Connemarra is a sturdy short legged breed that looks similar to the lovely photo c.t has of the Icelandic horse. I felt very safe on the sturdy little ponies.

I would love to make it to Iceland and will be very interested in your trip, how exciting!

Hi Finduella, I see that you've change the name, I was not sure who you were at first.

Yes I think I'll quite safe on the horse's back, actually it's my own back that I'm worried about. I don't have a strong back anymore.And I know that horse back riding is not the best thing to do when one doesn't have a good back to start with. But we'll see once there how it goes.

Iceland seems like an incredibly beautiful place, one of which I'm sure we'd love to see pictures of after you go!

Hi jime307, you can be sure that I'll put up some pics in my profile.

I just can't wait to see that wonderful country with so many places to explore and meet icelandic people and learn their cultlure.
This fascinates me and so far (touching wood) in our travels we never met unfriendly folks.
You'll have to wait a bit though because we leave at the end of september and back in the middle of October.
