ÍS: Icelandic Horses in the Approaching Storm

Icelandic HorsesIcelandic horses are a unique breed. They have two extra gaits from other horses, including the super smooth tolt. No horses are allowed to enter the country, so the breed has developed perfectly to suit the land since it was brought by the settlers 1000+ years ago. I spotted these hardy, little horses in Southwest Iceland, on my trip around Ring Road. My mom and I got a chance to ride Icelandic horses across the open landscape during our week in the Westfjords.
