    I would love to ride a purebred Icelandic in all their gaits, too! I think they are so cute & I love "little powerhouses".

    csimkunas6 Once you start riding you forget their size. They are broad backed you may think your feet will drag the ground but they won't. You just have to remember to give them their head they need their head up to gait properly. They don't collect like western horses do. They are a blast to ride and they can be ridden either english or western. I ride mine western or bare back. They are very versatile horses, you can jump them, do dressage, rope, work cows, drive they love to pull, trail ride, race, and are good at endurance, or what ever else you want to do with them.

    I've heard they are very versatile!! I could care less about their size. I did get to see them at the Equine Affaire quite a few years ago, and fell in love with the look of them! They looked amazingly comfy, and I was in love with their fluffy, full of life manes and tails! I will be on the search for farms around here that might give me the opportunity to try one ;D
