This helps us choose the right horses for you. You can do this on the check out page.

Wear comfortable pants and strong shoes (hiking boots are fine). We will provide you with a helmet and rain gear, if necessary. In winter, we also provide a snow suit. Please note that we require you to wear a helmet when riding with us, so if you'd like to wear a woolen hat or head band, make sure it's a thin one and fits comfortably under a helmet. InsurancesWe strongly recommend that you have your own personal insurance when joining a riding tour in Iceland.
