Beware of Imitations! – a genuine Icelandic horse must have a passport which shows its bloodlines can be traced back to horses in Iceland. Usually that passport will be from the IHSGB (or another national Icelandic horse society if the horse is not British-bred). All registered Icelandic horses are entered into WorldFengur, the international database of Icelandic horses (IHSGB members have free access to this database). If you are considering buying a horse or pony which has been advertised as an Icelandic and you are not sure of its breeding, please contact the IHSGB studbook for clarification.
Horses for Sale/Loan/Wanted
She is a beautiful red mare (with white flecks all over her body sometimes giving a silvery appearance, and with a star), born in 2010 and now trained and ready to move on. She was born and reared here and we take time in training all our own horses properly when they are mentally and physically ready. This is usually between 5 and 6 years old. We can give you a full history in photos. To handle she is easy in every way and has seen traffic, livestock, all farmy flappy things etc and she boxes, catches and shoes easily. She is keen when she hacks out across the countryside and loves to lead! She is very well mannered, intelligent and answers to the lightest of aids. Her gaits are all easy and clear and recently she has found very fast pace although we don’t encourage this too much due to the terrain here. Trot and tolt are easy to find. Orka has a strong build and is a good size. She has a lovely head with big kind dark eyes. She will make a lovely horse to hack out on and the further the better as far as she is concerned! No sweet itch and never had a health problem. She would also make a good quality brood mare with some rare colour genes in her makeup. Her dam is a beautiful silver dapple. £5200.00.

This jet black little mare with a distinctive snip is very sweet and loving. She is smaller than Orka but strong enough. She was born here in 2011, reared with her peers and has been brought on slowly. Much of the above description is the same for her except that she isn’t quite as far trained as Orka. We think she will suit an experienced child or light adult and would make a lovely family horse along with another. Again she is well bred by the same stallion as Orka (Isak fra Efri Brunavollum) and is an honest wee horse. She is always very keen to please and just needs a little more training before suiting a smaller rider. No sweet itch. £4700.00. Contact Jill on email@example.com.

Please contact Mic (email@example.com) for further details.
Venja fra Grund
9 year old 13.1 chestnut mare. Venja is 5 gaited with super tolt and pace. I imported her from Iceland 3 years ago with the hope of competing her in the future. Sadly we just haven’t clicked in the way I had hoped and I have come to the very hard decision to part with her. She will hack alone and in company, she is good in traffic and used to tractors and dogs, shoe, load and have rugs changed. She can be a little tricky to catch in the field but improves as she gets to know you. She is currently in Wales where she can be viewed. Venja needs a quiet, confident and understanding rider. She is a sharp and powerful little horse but bags of fun for the right rider. She has a lot to offer and will bring a lot of joy to the right person. Venja does suffer from sweetitch. This is a really difficult sale and I’ll be truly sorry to say goodbye but she deserves to be having fun. Reduced to sell at £4000. Please contact Cornelia on 07715567987 or Smari Slater on 07787336135.
GB2015164005 Bakkus from Aruwimi
Ljúfur from Etal Rhodes G2010112031
Ljúfur is a nice, fun gelding with great personality. 7 years old, black, happy to be ridden out, in the school, on his own and in company. Good with the farrier and most of what life throws at him! He’d make a good fun gelding for someone who wants to bring a young horse a long way! Plenty of tölt and forward thinking.
