Iceland, A Horse Of A Different Color


CANAUG29 053Among the unusual things to Iceland is its horses.

There is only one breed of them allowed in the country.




A not too far of a journey out of Reykjavik and I am straddling “coast kicker” for another experience unique to Iceland. On Icelandic horses we cross a cool landscape that remains from a volcanic eruption about 9000 years ago.

Scattered across this geological wonderland are isolated areas of wild berries. After our ride I end up with a handful of them.
