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.

Appolló from Aruwimi
This gorgeous boy is looking for his new human.
Appolló is a 5 gaited and 5 year old dark chestnut with flaxen mane and tail. He has lots of tölt which he favours , but also shows good ground gaits. He would excel as a luxury riding horse, he is well bred and could definitely be brought on to compete if required.
He is nice and solid, he is more suited to a competent and patient rider familiar with Icelandics. He needs a patient and invested home who will enjoy doing the groundwork with him as he needs time to build confidence and trust with new people and otherwise can be sensitive.
He’s been professionally rebacked by Robyn Philpott who has really enjoyed spending the time with him and has found him very rewarding. She is available to contact to discuss him.
He’s got great feet, could go without shoes if preferred. Good with farrier, loading and traveling. Loves cuddles and scratches.
He is such a lovely boy, lovely to keep, with such a sweet personality. He will definitely be missed by us and we hope we can find him a lovely new home. More videos and photos available, just contact Kathryn Wogan (07989 066934), or Robyn Philpott (she has over 200 to share in his short time with her ).

PENTLAND HILLS ICELANDICS, WINDY GOWL FARM
with over 30 years experience in all aspects of Icelandic horses
Horses for sale – breeding – training – livery – retirement
Our horses are carefully trained with understanding and with consideration to give their unforced best and to enjoy their work.
We are delighted to welcome in 2022 with over 50 Icelandic horses including two stallions, various horses ready for sale and in training, brood mares and growing youngsters, and with a large enthusiastic and active group of Icelandic horse liveries.
On the farm there is plenty of space in sheltered secluded fields for retired oldies who have given their everything and are now happy to live out their twilight years with a few old friends wanting for nothing and at peace with the world, and we pride in taking great care of them all.
