May 1 – International Day of the Icelandic horse

April 27 2016 | Leisure Riding, PR

The Icelandic Equestrian Association in cooperation with the marketing initiative Horses of Iceland collaborate on a weekend of celebration for the Icelandic horse. On April 30 there will be the annual horse parade through the city center of Reykjavík which is always a sight to see! On May 1, the Day of the Icelandic horse, owners of Icelandic horses all over the world are encouraged to organise an Open House day at their stables, and individuals are to invite their family and friends along to meet their horse. People are encouraged to share their moments with fans all over the world by posting photos/videos on their preferred social media with the hashtag #horsesoficeland. The best picture/video, where owners and horses are in a nature setting, will win a full week admission pass to the Icelandic horse festival Landsmót 2016!
