Dancing in the tölt on Snæfellsnes (West Iceland)
Arrival: August 4, 2023
Departure: August 11 (earliest in the evening, or on 12.8)
On the endless beach Snæfellsnes and on beautiful bridle paths in Borgarfjörður
This year we are riding with our colleagues Oddur and Gugga at Oddsstaðir farm in Lundareykjadalur. We all have decades of experience with highland riding and have also worked together several times.
We ride with a free herd from place to place. Almost all horses in the herd are bred by Oddur and Gugga and they have also broken in and trained them themselves. This means that they know each horse very well and this is also very important to them in this work when they invite participants with different levels of riding experience to ride with them. Many of the horses have also achieved good results in the breeding test. Their breeding goal for several decades has been to breed good riding horses with a lot of loose tölt and good character. The horses should be able to be ridden by every rider without any problems. Oddur is also a breeding judge and it is fun to talk to him about breeding and the current focus in Iceland.
We stay the whole week on the farm of Oddsstaðir. There we are guests of the family. The rooms have shared bathroom / toilet. In the garden there is a warm pool where we can relax after riding. In the evening after riding we come back to the farm, but the horses stay where the day's ride ends and the next morning we return there with the farm's own bus and the ride continues. fIn the evening Gugga cooks for us - there is traditional, delicious Icelandic food from fresh ingredients directly from the area and from their own farm.
Oddstaðir is close to the highlands. There are many beautiful possibilities to ride in this area. Our tour is characterised by very soft and good riding horses and very beautiful nature.
