Weanling I know that they are not native to NZ but I remember reading a good write up about them in NZ Horse and Pony. Hope this is helpful.

There are people that think mike is a icelandic ( I am not totally sure of this.) All I know is that there short but extremly strong! Also there gait I have heard is suppose to almost feel like a canter but its was a girl that I don't belive all the time, so I am not sure of this.

Lol I fink you might be on about tolt.this gait is soo smooth they do shows about it and they have adults on them holding a pint of beer.and because it is soo smooth they don't spill a drop...has anyone on here ever rode one.i think I might go with a friend from work(stables) on a riding holiday to iceland..she really likes them too..i think it will be fun

I have ridden one! Actually more than one.. The icelandichorse is very popular in Norway, so lots of people have them! They can be very stubborn as other coldblood horses, but their gait, tolt is very funny to ride in. It's not like trot, but something similar.. A friend of mine have one, a very strong and cute little pony! :)

Lol awww.what is your friends one like to own and ride..does she keep it with other icelandics or does she keep it with other horses and ponies??

Both actually. My friend have the horse, Goa, with four other icelandic and two døla horses (Norwegian breed). When she came from Iceland, she was very shy and square shaped. But we builed her up again, so now she's doing everything. They´re not very tall, she's rather small. But with a lot of personality as she has, she's a wonderful horse to own! She don't needs a lot of food either.
