January is the month when horsemanship in Iceland comes to life.
It has been a long tradition in Iceland that most riding horses get a long vacation in autumn. These regular periods of total freedom with the herd on large fields are considered to be important to maintain the horse‘s physical and mental health, and contribute to the special, independent character of the Icelandic horse.
It is always nice to welcome horses back to the stable that have been outside and start with the winter training. Some of our horses that we released into the autumn fields in September just returned and we are looking forward to working with them. We bought many new horses before last year‘s season that we will get to know better until our guests will experience next summer‘s tours on their back. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce them to you on our facebook page within the coming months.
