Testimonials from happy riders

I loved this tour!! I got picked up at my hotel and brought to the stable where I was briefed and equipped with riding gear and the most perfect Icelandic horse named Scripa. We then rode for about an hour (if I remember correctly). The journey was beautiful and the two riding instructors were so lovely. I highly recommend this to anyone!
