Horses of Iceland  The official initiative to promote the Icelandic horse. Join our cause by tagging your pictures with #Horsesoficeland


We recently ventured out on a horse riding journey with our friends from @ishestarriding - experiencing their popular Lava Tour. We rode through the incredible Icelandic scenery, amongst lava fields, lupines, trees and good company. It's was an amazing journey and our horse, called Emma, was both calm and willing, just the kind of horse we like when taking photos from horseback. 😊 @ishestarriding is one of the pioneers within Icelandic horse tours in Iceland - and has set a great example by preparing the guidelines for how horse tour operators should treat their horses - ensuring the wellbeing of these precious animals. In return, the happy horses reward us with an unforgettable experience. Thanks @ishestarriding for a wonderful journey!

For those of you who are interested, @ishestarriding is having a contest where you can win a multiday trip for two - head over to their facebook page for further info. #horsesoficeland

Hello there! Did you know that Horses of Iceland grow thicker coat to stay warm and strong during the winter months? One could say that they are invincible when it comes to a harsh climate :) 🇮🇸🐴💪#horsesoficeland 📸by @lofothest

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. It's no surprise why so many photographers fall in love with the Icelandic Horse. There are endless opportunities for photographing their amazing beauty - and each photographer will see and interpret their beauty in a different way - to the joy of all of us.

Meet Glanni the colour changer. He is one of only 500 color changing roans in Iceland. We recently met Glanni on our trip to the highlands with @Riding.Iceland and were fascinated by his incredible color. Read the full story about Glanni and his color changing abilities on our website - see link in bio. #horsesoficeland Photo by @icelandic_explorer

See the horse for its soul and character. Listen to the horse and let the friendship unfold #horsesoficeland 📸 by @intrinzen 👁🐴🇮🇸💕

Although the commonly known statement “a good horse has no colour” is true to a degree, people often have their favourites and will discuss the range of characteristics of colours to much depth. No wonder that the colours can be a topic of serious discussions, when they are so rich and beautiful #horsesoficeland 📸 by @marlanoc

Horses of Iceland are indeed special and unique. There is a lot of effort put by the breeders and the Icelandic Horse community into making sure they have the opportunity to reach their highest potential. For example the functioning of a database on over 400.000 Horses called
World Fengur. It is the original lineage register (official studbook) for the Icelandic horse. It gathers information on the Icelandic horse and is available online. World Fengur contains details on all registered Icelandic horses in the world. Anything from a list of offspring and their owners, to competition results, photos and breeding value prediction (BLUP) can be found. That's all done for the love of #horsesoficeland

Cuteness overload!
Most fun often comes from unexpected sources - and even though the horse and the dog know their roles very well in the Icelandic farm life, no one ever said they can't be friends 🐴🐶💙🇮🇸

The Legendary Laufskálarétt is quickly approaching, taking place on the 30th of September. It’s going to be an incredible weekend for horse enthusiasts, professionals, locals and tourists alike - giving insight into a centuries old tradition of gathering horses from the highlands into the corral, whereafter they will be taken to their homes for the winter. After a summer in the mountains, the horses are as lively, beautiful and charismatic as ever, and it will be truly amazing to experience this event, which has become an important part of Icelandic Heritage #horsesoficeland

We @horsesoficeland find it so rewarding to not only share the beauty of the Horses of Iceland with the world but also to experience and pass forward the love for the Icelandic horse that we see coming from all sides of the globe. This stunning capture and the beautiful words clearly show how special the bond between a horse and a rider can be.
