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.

Pentland Hills Icelandics
Pentland Hills Icelandics has run out of trained horses for now after a rush over the summer and fantastic new homes coming forward. Now we have youngsters growing up and they will be trained here at five and then ready to move on to a forever home. You can show interest now if you so wish.
Good reasons for buying from PHI are if you wish your horse to –
- be trusting and trustworthy and to be friendly yet respectful
- respond to light aids with calm confidence
- be well balanced in mind and body
- love exploring, hacking out and eager to learn different activities
- have good easy gaits
- thrive in a healthy robust environment
- be calm and easy in traffic, boxing, shoeing, catching and on meeting most scary things on farm
We are very careful about where our horses land and so be prepared for many questions first! If your circumstances change, we ask that the horse is offered back to protect its future.
