    I know one who does a pretty nice pass too, so that makes it 6 gaits. Lol. Yeah, I live in Germany atm, and they are pretty common around here.

    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 (skeiğ) !

    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

    tölt is a even four beat gait like walk, but the movement levels ( or whatever you call them please inform me) are different from walk ! There is always atleast one foot on the ground ! Its really smoth and can be ridden really slow or really fast

    Iclandic Horses

    The Iclandic Horse is awsome! My friend bred them for a while and they sure can move out and carry alot of weight for how small they are! (Usually around thirteen hands give or take) They are really smooth from what I am told and make great riding horses. Really tough too when it comes to cold weather. At the demos and shows usually they come out with the wine classes in hand of the riders to demonstrate how smoooooth their tolt is. Pretty impressive! :P
