What to bring for a horse tour at Langhus farm, or for finding a dream horse with Langhus farm, in the summer time (May-August):

We have and provide:

  • Riding helmets.
  • Rain clothes (rain is very rare in our area).
  • Some extra gloves, hats, buffs and such.

The climate in our area is wonderful in the summer, rain hardly happens, and a lot of still weather, and good temperatures for Icelandic standard.  But people from other countries are often not used to our summer temperatures, and we also sit still on horseback, it’s different from hiking 🙂

So dress a little bit warmly.

In the summertime it is a good idea to wear:

  • A wind-tight jacket.
  • A warm sweater, for example a fleece sweater.
  • Some soft type of pants (jeans with thick seams can be uncomfortable).
  • Comfortable gloves.
  • Sneakers or sport shoes or light walking shoes (shoes wider than 4.5 inches or 11.5 cm. can be unsafe).

Also:

  • If you own used riding clothes that you can wash in washing machine (min 40°C) before coming to Iceland, feel free to bring them.
  • Regarding used riding helmets and riding shoes, don’t bring them to Iceland (because of risk of bringing diseases), or read and follow strictly the MAST disinfection guidelines.

For longer rides, you might want to bring some sandwiches or other snacks that you like.  We do though have some light refreshments in a break on longer tours (3 hours or more).

What to bring for a horse tour at Langhus farm, or for finding a dream horse with Langhus farm, in the winter time (September – May):

We have and provide:

  • Riding helmets.
  • Rain clothes (rain is very rare in our area).
  • Some extra gloves, hats, winter overalls and such (we don’t have all sizes though).

We can have a lot of good days in this time of the year, but it is still good to wear warm clothes, because some days are chillier than others, and you can easily take off clothes if you are too warm, but it is not fun to feel cold.  You can hardly dress too well.  This is not because the weather is bad, but people from other countries are often not used to any cold, and we also sit still on horseback, it’s different from hiking 🙂

In the wintertime it is a good idea to wear:

  • A wind-tight jacket and pants.
  • A warm sweater, for example a fleece sweater.
  • Some soft type of pants (jeans with thick seams can be uncomfortable).
  • Warm gloves.
  • A thin hat or buff (a thick hat can be hard to fit under a helmet).
  • Sneakers or sport shoes or light walking shoes (shoes wider than 4.5 inches or 11.5 cm. can be unsafe).

Also:

  • If you have long underpants, or woolen/insulating underwear, it’s good to use them, and it is better to have on more layers of clothes than fewer layers.
  • If you own used riding clothes that you can wash in washing machine (min 40°C) before coming to Iceland, feel free to bring them.
  • Regarding used riding helmets and riding shoes, don’t bring them to Iceland (because of risk of bringing diseases), or read and follow strictly the MAST disinfection guidelines.
