Who We Are

Perluhestar is a family business owned by a young couple Arnar Jónsson and Sjöfn Sæmundsdóttir and their son Alexander Óðinn. The name Perluhestar comes from a 1 price breeding mare Perla frá Lindarholti owned by Sjöfns mother. Perla is the ancestress of all the horses in the pack.

In the beginning of the year 2016 Arnar and Sjöfn build a 350m² Horse Stable and Riding Hall for their operation. The building is equipped with all the modern facilities and comfort according to regulations. This is to make sure that both people and horses will be comfortable and secure.

Sjöfn Sæmundstóttir

I have been around horses all my life. Although, being familiar with horses is not enough to be able to teach others how to ride a horse. One has to have a college degree and a teacher licence. The year 2013 I finished the study of Equine Science at the University of Holar í Hjaltadal as a riding teacher. I also have a vast experience in horse training and horse breeding. Shortly after graduation my husband Arnar and I decided to build a stable for our newly established riding school and horse rental.

The Facilities

Our new horse stable

We are proud to offer to our guests a first class conditions in the new horse stable. The building is a 350 square meeter steelframe building located in the friendly town Þorlákshöfn.

We have a large paddock around the building where we prepare our guests and students for an unforgetable riding experience.

You do not need to bring any riding equipments, we provide it all. The only thing you need to bring with you is a good spirit and warm clothes since the crisp and fresh breeze from the Atlantic Ocean can be a little chilly at times.
