Round Up - Iceland

Sheep Round Up - Landmannaafréttur

5 star rating   22 September 2022

Paula who has been on 13 In The Saddle rides. Seventh In-The-Saddle Holiday and still different | Exceeded expectations.
Our guides Ingvar and Anton looked after us well, and we enjoyed their company.
The horses were all sound, fit and very well cared for.
I think the description of the riding we received before departure was accurate.
The horses are all quire forward going, and terrain can be challenging, but I don't think that was any different to what we expected.

A good tip would be taking a small light curry comb (brush that is) would be a good idea, as you have to brush off mud to tack them up, and that may be two horses a day - those who'd been before carried these, so we were able to borrow.

It is very weather dependent, and we were lucky on that front (but other guests told us of poor weather conditions last year.

Hilary who has been on 7 In The Saddle rides. So much fun - combined herd riding with Icelandic tradition and great scenery | I will treasure the memories of the whole Saturday as it started with coming together with up to 100 other riders like a pony club or hunting day, riding over the mountains to watch the farmers bringing down the mares and foals followed by the most fun and fast ride down the valley after the mares and foals herd to bring them to the shedding ring.

Simon (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Iceland Round Up at Hvammur Farm - Horsetastic | We rode up to three horses a day. The herd was sandwiched between front and back riders. The horses were relaxed because they formed part of a herd but would also listen to individual commands.
