Icehorse Experience offers a horse tour

Kristinn Guðnason president of the Association of horse farmers officially opened the introductory web...

 
Icehorse Experience in the Íshestar housing in Hafnarfjörður today.
 
On this website farmers are offering people so-called electronic horse riding, with that in minde to introduce the horse, his qualities and his impenetrable connection with nature. At the home page there are twelve video clips from three horse trips which took place last fall. The video clips are taken from the standpoint of the rider who is taking a trip with his friends and their herding horses around the beautiful nature. The mane is fluctuating in the wind, and the spectator can hear the hoof beating the ground and the shouting of his fellow riders, he gets the feeling for his surroundings, the weather and he  experiences what it is like to participate in herding horses. 
 
The video clips that are accessible are from tours around Þingvellir, over the river Ytri-Rangá and the cameramen joined the party when they went over the so called Landmanna passage. According to Hulda G. Geirsdóttir, who introduced the web today, she said that the idea is to add more video clips from many different tours and even from other surroundings, such as from the competition track, riding a famous horses. The object is first and foremost to give people an insight into what it is like to take a horse trip and to introduce the Icelandic horse in this unusual and fun way. The video clips are meant to be distributed between people on the world web through communication webs and e-mails.
 
On the web site one can access many useful and informative material on the Icelandic horse and how he is shaped by his roots; nature, vastness of open space, nurture and freedom. Also links can be accessed into horse breeding farms, people selling horses and establishments for horse travels. Horse breeders, those selling and those organizing horse tours can get into touch with the Association of Horse farmers in order to get their own firm introduced at the  Icehorse Experience.
 
Eiðfaxi encourages everyone to take an electronic horse riding tour!
