I can probably help alot
coming from iceland I should know I thing or two
So if you have questions just ask !
Since it´s the only breed I've ridden I can´t really compare them with other breeds, but I think they are as different as they are many ! I´ve come across horses who wouldn´t flinch if a bomb would go behind them, and then i´ve met some, or well really just one
, that freaks out over nearly nothing !
But their gaits are mighty nice

actually canter and gallop are considered the same thing in iceland so their five gaits are walk (fet), trot (brokk), canter/gallop (stökk), tolt (tölt) and flying pace (skeið) !
Kirsten; im going to take german next year just because I think it would be useful because of all the icelandic horses there ! I don't remember the numbers but I think their are only about 10000 less icelandics in germany then in iceland
