Horse Shows & Exhibitions

Horse farms in the area often host hour-long shows that showcase the five gaits of the Icelandic horse, and detail the breed’s history. Shows are usually scheduled for groups, and individuals can then attend. Ask at the tourist information centre or contact the farms directly.

The summertime weekly 'Horses & Heritage' evening program (2000kr) at Lýtingsstaðir encompasses facts and stories in a beautifully crafted turf house known as the Old Stable. Or just check out its Old Stable exhibition (adult/child 1000kr/free, open daily).
