The Icelandic horse is small but enormously muscular, and with very dense bones, often with a heavy head and compact body.  This breed is possessed of great agility and is also very sure-footed.  It carries grown men, even heavy men, at speed without tiring. They have a good temper so children have usually no problem with them and they like being around people

Many horses in Iceland are still kept in semi wild conditions, living in pasture all year round, only given hay out on the snow in the worst winter months. This one is a part of my familys herd

Horseback riding is a very popular family sport here in Iceland and farmers still use horses to collect their sheep herds from the highlands where they spend the summer months
