Registered Icelandic Mare
Registered 6 yr old Icelandic bay mare Lilla. Lilla is trained to ride. Ties, loads, picks up feet, trailers. Very sweet girl. Good bloodlines. Has been ridden by a busy road many times and has always done well but due to lack of time has not been ridden much this yr. Needs work with staying in gait. Measures around 14’. $1800 sorry no trades. We also have 2 other Icelandic horses for sale. This last yr has become crazy and with no time for riding and working with the horses they are falling back some with the work that has been done with them. I have lowered the prices to try to get them into new homes soon where they can get the attention they need.

One of the smoothest gaited breed. Known for its calmness and intelligence it also has little natural tendency to spook.
They have lived in close quarters with humans for much of their history, making them exceptional companion animals. Being isolated on an island they have had virtually no cross breeding for centuries. The rugged climate and close quarters with their handlers insured that only the most tractable and hardy animals would be allowed to breed.
They rarely kick or bite
The Icelandic Horse averages less than 13 hands high. Because of their size they are often referred to as ponies, however these are very strong horses and routinely carry full size adults. They are known for their character, which is brave, happy, and confident. The Icelandic tries hard to please his rider. Properly trained, this horse is generally sensible, easy to ride, and easy to handle.
Icelandic Horses are easy keepers, and should not be overfed. They are very adaptable to most environments. They are easy going enough to put with other horses in pasture, but can also do quite well in a stall living in close quarters with both humans and other animals. Most Icelandic’s are known to form very close bonds with their owners.
They make excellent children's horses because of their kind nature and lack of spookiness. They are known for their dependability and surefootedness on the trail, and are a popular trekking and endurance horse because their gait is so comfortable to ride. They can also be used for lower level dressage and jumping.
