Jill who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Amazing holiday. | Horses very well looked after and clearly loved. While the rides were not long, due to the cold, they were the right length.

Tessa who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Explore winter - Sweden | All the horses were adorable, each one with their own personality. They were very well trained and it was relatively easy to get them to tolt (amazingly comfortable gait, if only all horses could tolt!!!).
It was also great to have the time to groom and tack them. I rarely have the time to do it myself so I really appreciated that extra time with the horses before and after the ride. Icelandic horses are very sensitive and we were encouraged to take our time to take care of them. Quite an experience to hammer the ice under their hooves as well!

The riding is not as intense as during other horseback holidays however I believe that it was suitable considering the terrain and weather conditions. There were options to have additional lessons to master the gaits and transitions or to do some ground work with the horses. We also had the opportunity to do exercises with them to help them stretch at the end of the ride.

EJR who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. Sweden Explore Winter | Totally different, cantering in the dark in the snow, learning to tolt, can't say I was terribly good but the horses were great. Lovely natured horses, really a pleasure to spend time with. The scenery was stunning.
