We know of hundreds of other horses for sale, feel free to contact us with your wishes.

Are you looking for a FAMILIY HORSE?  Maybe in a certain price category?  Or a COMPETITION horse or BREEDING horse?  I can easily help.  Due to how many horses we’re sometimes selling, there are not always many horses on our sales list.  Very often I (Lukka) do instead go and look for someone for the horse of their dreams, it is easy as there are thousands of Icelandic horses in my neighbourhood and I have many good connections with good trainers.  People often visit me too for a couple of days, and we go all over the neighbourhood to find the right horse for them.  So, don’t hesitate to send an e-mail, I can certainly help you.

EXPORT is easy, and we help with the whole process.  Contact us for more information on the process, updated costs etc.
