Iceland is a land of beauty in so many ways. One of the special things is the horses in Iceland. They are unique to Iceland and they are just plain cool. They are sturdy little horses that can put up with the harshest weather. Their tales and mains are long and flowing. You see horses all over Iceland and if you stop and visit with them, they will come right up to you and show signs of affection, especially if you have an apple or carrot in your pocket.
You cannot import any horses into Iceland. If you export an Iceland horse that is fine, but that horse and/or offspring will not be allowed back into Iceland. They are doing their best to keep the breed pure.
