Learn how to ride an Icelandic horse 2017

Riding courses for every level of experience

Perluhestar offers a combination of riding education, both theoretical and practical in our local Riding Hall, along with half day riding tours in the scenic surroundings of our horse center and comfortable accommodation close to the stable at Jonna Guesthouse.
This course is suited for experienced riders as well as for beginners.

Participants will be divided into small groups according to their riding skills. Riders who are used to Icelandic horses will get the opportunity to develop their riding skills on different, well trained horses.

Riders who are used to other breeds than Icelandic horses will learn how to ride Icelandic horses in tölt, and understand the similarities and dissimilarities to riding big horses.

During your stay you will enjoy Icelandic specialties in Jonnis restaurant, and in the evenings you have the possibility to relax in our hot tub or visit the geothermal swimming pool here in Þorlákshöfn, one of the best in Iceland.

Teacher is Sjöfn Sæmundsdóttir riding teacher from the University Hólar í Hjaltadal.
