Here are some video clips of riding in Iceland. Some of the characteristics that the Icelandic horse displays can be seen in them, and the landscapes of Iceland come through a bit also.
Much of the footage was shot from the backs of horses and all is hand-held, just for fun, with no plans to publish it. We used very simple editing and streaming. It may not be art but it was FUN, and only on a few occassions did I have to stuff a still-running camera into a pocket and deal with a horse that wondered why we were being left behind and why her rider wasn't paying attention to her!
We'll be putting more clips up from time to time, and we hope to make some time to put up some explaining text. Windows Media Player seems to open these files OK - let us know if you have any trouble.
These clips do show a little bit of the way Icelandics are ridden. As a rider (unless your experience includes riding Icelandics) you might find the seat confusing!
Many of these clips are from rides in the May '03 issue of
