We were collected from our hotel, in Thingvellir and taken on a very exciting car journey out to the stables where we were met by Emma, our lovely Swedish guide. Emma chose the perfect horses for our level of experience (none). I got a lovely gentle old fella called 'Friend' who was very patient. Emma ran through the basics with us, then we had a chance to practice before we set off across the beautiful fields, alongside the mountain. I dont mind admitting I was worried as I had never been on a horse before. I needn't have worried, after half an hour I was confident enough to try the special 5th gait - the Tolt - that these amazing horses have.
All in all a fabulous experience, made extra special by emma.
