You can do anything with them, mine are 5 gaited, walk,trot, canter, tolt and flying pace, you can drive them they love to pull, jump them the pally could jump a 5 foot fence at a stand still, I've seen them do dressage, race that's what the do in Iceland with them, I just trail ride mine, they go any where, love the water. Rex can be roped off of but he doesn't have the cow sense like a QH. Also in Iceland they are used as meat, they have the riding stock and the meat stock. They are 2 1/2 times stronger than the average horse, like mini drafts, big bones and muscles, they have no natural predators so they aren't spooky, they're very brave, loyal, and just plain fun to have, they love people and have the best personalities.

that's pretty awesome! How tall are they? They looked to be the size of a shetland pony to me.

They should be between 125-145 cm tall. But here we have some Icelandic horses that are over 150 cm tall.

Awesome, they are bigger than they look! Great pics of her stripe as well! I love the buckskin paint guy, but man, if I tried to ride one, they would probably collapse, haha!

They can carry more than you would think.
Well, for an example, On Iceland, there are no other horses, but the Icelandic Horse, so grown men ride Icelandic horses all the time.

They are short but stocky, it doesn't feel like riding a pony really, they are broad backed so your your feet don't feel like they are going to drag the ground.

What do you mean by "windswept?" Haven't heard that term before. Love your horses :) We have a 13.3 POA, very sturdy, wonderful height for those who are afraid of heights :) Can't wait to see the foal!

I'll go for a buckskin filly!!

windswept means contracted tendons and crooked legs at birth, it looks like the wind is blowing the the legs sideways. She holds her foals longer, she's always late.
