The icelandic horse is a beautiful and friendly animal, that came with the original settlers in the 900’s. The breed hasn’t changed at all for almost a thousand years, so this friendly horse is a true viking horse. Although it is relatively small compared to other horses, it’s far from being a type of pony – at all. It’s much stronger and more resilient than the pony breed. The icelandic horse has five gaits and because it is used to staying outdoors, even through harsh winters, it’s extremely strong and healthy and its personality has charmed people all over the world.
