Monday is a day I've been looking forward to as its set to be an action packed day. My morning I've got some horse riding organised but not your usual kind.
Icelandic horses have five gaits to a normal horses four which turns out make the entire task quite different. On arriving at the horse farm, which is set in the middle of Thingvellir National Park, the first thing you notice its how little these horses are. I'm given a horse with an almost pronouncable name but which aparently meant nibble footed and told he is 'speedy' and yes he was.
Icelandic riding proved quite different to what I'm used too but I think I might actually prefer it. The views were beautiful and the ride went through various ups and downs and even through a river or two but on the homeward leg I got to see how fast "nibble foot" could go. Icelandic horse riding and indeed racing can now be ticked of the Iceland must do list.
