My main priority is always that the horses are well cared for and loved - this was clear, we had a lovely family ride and split into groups so we could tolt as more experienced riders. Lovely view and really fun

There were just 4 of us but we still had 2 wonderfully helpful and engaging guides. The scenery was spectacular and the horses just the calmest, most beautiful creatures. Thank you for having such wonderful employees to show us this part of Iceland!
