Icelandic Horse 1

Grundarfjörður, Iceland

The Icelandic horse was brought to the country in the 9th and 10th centuries by Norse settlers. Today, the breed is pure. Icelandic law does not allow other breeds to be imported. If a horse is exported, it is not allowed to return.

These horses are known for their unique gait as well as their gentleness. This particular horse seemed to enjoy the fashion shoot, turning his head from side to side and nuzzling my arm to keep me interested! Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
