This tour will start in Reykjavik. We will go through meadows and lava fields and pass several farms which will teach us how agriculture is in Iceland as well as horse breeding and how it have been developed over the decades. During the tour you will have a good opportunity to experience the so called gait tölt for we will gallop along good tölt paths. The tölt is a gait exhibited by Icelandic Horses. It is a ‘rack’ or ‘running walk’ with the same footfall pattern as a walk. While tölting, horses do not exhibit the same animation and high knee action as many other breeds. This is a very forward moving, but smooth gait that can carry a rider comfortably over rough ground. After the tour, we will visit an old farmhouse for coffee and some home baked specialty.
