Volunteer work / internship on the farm?

WE HAVE AN OPEN POSITION NOW until ca. 7. June.
We are looking for somebody that is ready to stay for that time, has ridden lots and taken care of horses, and has experience with Icelandic horses (IT IS A REQUIREMENT). Room and board is provided, and you just live with our family and become a part of our gang. The work can be ca. 4 hours of stable work and similar per day, and of course you can get days off if you want to go and explore. Then we’d provide some horses for you to ride on and enjoy. If you have experience with training young green horses, this can be a good opportunity for you to learn more. And you of course learn a lot about the Icelandic horse, riding and taking care of the horses, and about the country that molded our beloved horses. IMG_3698

Friendship.

It was a cold and windy day today, so we took on winter overalls and hats and went to ride.  Oskadis from Langhusum greeted Láki, relaxed and happy, and curious to see her friend.  Isn’t it the top of the world for me, to see the horses love Láki – just like I do :)  Oh yes :)

Our horse tours are open all year round.

Our horse tours are open, even though it’s just March.  Our operation is open all year round.

We love horse tours. It’s been our passion, all our life. To go out in the nature, be a team with our horse, and cross beautiful places, and sometimes tough landscape, that molded our beloved Icelandic horse. To have the companionship of other horse lovers, and to just live and breath the fresh air in the nature, and feel the rhythm of life.
And then we started offering others to come with us. And like with all trekking companions, you design the tour with us. We have several tour options to give ideas, but you choose with us which way you want to go, on what kind of horses, how long, and how challenging. We can also help with accommodation, with other things to do when not riding, etc. Just feel free to contact us and we make something wonderful together, and more important, have fun :)

Snapshots from our life this week.

Silver dapple mare foal.

It is funny, that when a silver dapple is born, the color looks like you’ve taken your black pants, let them lie in chlorine for a day, and then washed them 10 times in the washing machine. Then after a year, this strange color sometimes morphs into the gorgeous black body and white mane (if one of the parents has that shade).
Svala had a wonderful mare foal this summer, and that pretty little mare will have a gorgeous icing on the cake when her mane becomes long and white 
Father is Stakkur from Flugumýri (4 yo, blup 120).silvur
