We arrived a little early for our morning ride last week but were made to feel welcome on the farm and left to explore, play with the lovely Charles (dog) and meet the horses. The guy assigning us our horses was funny and friendly and paired us all with an enjoyable ride. As an experience rider it was fantastic not to be put on the slowest horse and we managed to squeeze in an exhilarating canter at the end.
On arrival back at the farm we were presented with hot drinks, fresh cakes and toasty radiators to thaw our feet on!
I would love to go back and would highly recommend the trip for beginners and experienced riders too.

I went with a friend that had as much experience as I did on horseback. They let us break into different groups of skill level. It was amazing.

Horse riding was not on our list of things to do whilst visiting Iceland as my husband and I (66 and 57) have no past experience with horses. Guests at our hotel recommend we give it a try, so pleased we did it was an amazing trek with fantastic mountain scenery. The staff are very friendly and well organised ensuring you are given the horse to match your ability. Special thank you to Line for your lovely company and patience shown. Excellent way to spend a few hours can highly recommend this riding tour.

Considering our tour was on November 2 2012 a day that was overcast, had a windchill the reide was very pleasant. We had brought warm clothing and though we were well dressed for the weather. Thankfully we listened to the staff and the farm and put there overalls over top of our gear. The farm is well equipped with extra clothing, everything you could possibly need including boots and considering you take the horses through the rivers i would recommend using the boots. The staff, whether at the farm or on our riding tour were all very helpful ad pleasant, it was a thoroughly enjoyable morning of horseback riding. Would definetly do this again.
