We booked this based on other reviews and were not disappointed. The bus picked us up right at our hotel and drove about 20 minutes to the farm. They took care that everyone's helmets were fitting and tried to match people and horses. The horses...More

Greeted by the friendly family that runs the horse farm. They did a great job of selecting horses and guiding the group through the beautiful Icelandic countryside. Stopped to see the Waterfall of the Trolls, and enjoyed a beer after the ride in their lounge.

We went horse riding with the family and it was a great experience. The staff were very professional and the horses suitable for differing skill levels. The weather was unpredictable but they gave us waterproofs and the countryside was amazing!

My guess is yes as we all spent probably 20 to 30 minutes with our horses before the ride. While your sister is in the ride I'd think you could visit the horses not being ridden. I'd email them and ask. I was an incredible... More
