We are still in the early part of the foaling season and beautiful Icelandic foals are being born all around the world. It's such an exciting period where new families members are entering the world - much to the joy of all of us. We would love to hear your stories from these young ones being born - so feel free to leave a comment below where you tell us a bit about how it all happened โ˜บ๏ธBeautiful capture by @barghof #horsesoficeland

It is spring in Iceland and the perfect time to go for a horse ride to enjoy the beautiful Icelandic landscape. We recently went to visit our friends and project partner from @islenskihesturinn - The Icelandic Horse, and joined them on their amazing Volcanic Landscape tour. The company is owned and run by Begga Rist and her husband Sveinn Atli, and all their tours begin with a visit to "Begga's Riding School". This gives both experienced and inexperienced riders alike a great understanding of what it means to ride the horses of Iceland and how to get the most out of the trip. And importantly, it enables almost everyone to experience the amazing tรถlt. They place large emphasis on quality, sustainability and equality - both for horses and people. As a result, the staff has a driving passion for horses as well as the Icelandic nature, an all the guides operating the tours are educated guides. During our Volcanic Landscape tour, we were amazed by riding through the beautiful geothermal landscape - but the highlight of the tour was experiencing Begga's passion for the Icelandic Horse and how this positively influenced the entire group. #Horsesoficeland

Photo contest - winner announcement.
We are amazed by the participation in our Day of the Icelandic Horse photo contest and by all the beautiful moments and horses photographed around the world. It is the love and passion for this unique breed that brings us all together! We are excited to announce @sandra.fencl as the winner of the photo contest, receiving 837 votes in total. She captured a photo of her white mare in front of a waterfall in Rauris, Austria.
Sandra is an Austrian professional horse trainer, horse health expert and equine photographer. She got her first horse 29 years ago, and still owns this horse today โ€“ a 36 year old mare. Sandra used to compete with Icelandic horses, but turned towards a more holistic approach regarding horse relationship and training โ€“ focusing on things such as equine therapy and photography.
A big congratulations to Sandra and we hope she will enjoy the adventure in the land of Horses of Iceland with @heyiceland .
Thank you all for participating in the Day of the Icelandic Horse photo contest!
