They can go up to 30 mph in flying pace (otherwise known as “skeið”). It’s one of the most incredible feelings, to ride a horse in true flying pace. You don’t move at all in the saddle and it really does feel like flying :)
That sounds absolutely incredible. To ride an Icelandic horse properly is definitely on my bucket list.
Harley is so majestic even when he’s walking this is borderline ridiculous look at this noble motherfucker.
What the fUCK those HOOVES
His hooves are terrifying to pick out, like you just never know what’s gonna come out, maybe five pounds of mud and horse shit, perhaps a few grasshoppers and a live mouse or two, the entire country of Russia…
You just never know man.
what a massive beastie
I am so used to comparatively small mule hooves. Those things look like dinner plates. I can not imagine having to paint and glitter them. lol
