Our Story

Perluhestar Riding School

Sjöfn Sæmundsdóttir, the owner of Perluhestar along with, Arnar, her husband, has been working as a riding teacher for 11 years. After her graduation in Equine Science at the University of Holar í Hjaltadal, Sjöfn and Arnar established Perluhestar Riding School and Perluhestar Horse Rental. The School is opperated all year round. During winter seminars there are weekly sessions with students. In the Summer the school is more flexible; Students attend the Riding school on a daily bases for a week long seminar. It is of course up to the Student how many weekly seminars they chose to take.

There are 14 Icelandic horses specially trained for students of different skill level. The horses are chosen for the purpose of teaching how to ride and therefore we tend to look at them as part of the teaching team.

Take a look at some of them here



Curriculum:

1. We begin with saddle lessons and balance practice. Those lessons are crucial for the student in order to, later on, fully control the stability in the saddle during a riding tour in a rough terrain

2. Next, the Student learns how to control the horse and manage it with respect and dignity. It is important to learn how to respect the sensitive Icelandic Horse and simultaneously enjoy the association with the amazing animal.

3. The students get’s to ride many different horses and learn the personal diversity of The Icelandic Horse.

4. We start with sessions indoor at the riding hall but once the student is confident we will go on adventure trips in the Unique Icelandic Nature.
