About Kids & Icelandics

Kids and IcelandicsWith their friendly disposition, inviting size, and incredibly forgiving nature, Icelandics are often a great match for kids of all ages, especially those that just want to have fun. Most Icelandics are sane and safe enough for kids to enjoy through all sorts of activities.

Growing up with horses is not only a lot of fun and adventure but also teaches kids about compassion, love and responsibility for a four-legged companion who is always ready to lend a patient ear to hear about problems in school or with friends in exchange for a carrot.
