Icelandic Horses

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of the best things I experienced in Iceland was riding with an Icelandic horse.

I’ve taken riding classes when I was a child, but that hobby faded after I fell off a horse (well, it was a pony, but the situation was dramatic nevertheless! :D). I guess that sort of left a small fear towards horseback riding — because anything can happen when there are living creatures involved.

But after the riding trip in Iceland, I’ve been wondering why did I ever stop?!? Riding is so much fun. And it wasn’t scary at all (might be because the tour was made so safe and easy and it was suitable for beginners… Actually my mom rode for the very first time in her life!)

There are many different tour options and companies that organize riding tours in Iceland to choose from. And many of them are only less than 20 minutes ride away from downtown Reykjavik. We went with Islenski Hesturinn (The Icelandic Horse) and I have nothing bad to say about them. Our guide Inga seemed really skillful, reliable and nice. I really had a blast!

The pictures in this post are taken by our guide Inga and belong to The Icelandic Horse (I’m not that pro that I could ride and photograph at the same time — yet ;)).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
