"Before coming to Ísland, I had not ridden a horse in 10 years or so because I seemed to always have bad luck with them. When I found out that I would be living on a farm with a horse rental my plan was to keep my distance from the stables. After watching the horses and seeing just how small and gentle they were I agreed to go for a ride. Once I groomed and saddled up Prince, my horse, we were off! Immediately I loved it. Unlike North-American horses the Icelandic ones are graceful, calm and the perfect size. So I faced a fear and made a new best friend.
