Old Icelandic Stallions to Be Shown in Berlin

The World Championship of Icelandic Horses will take place in Berlin next year and is expected to raise awareness of the breed worldwide. For example, a group ride through the Brandenburg Gate in the city center is likely to garner attention.

Another project which has been gaining interest is a private initiative on Facebook where Susanne George challenged owners of old contestants in the World Championship of the Icelandic Horse to demonstrate the horses in Berlin, Morgunblaðið reports.

Twenty-three horses aged 20 years and older have already been registered to the oldies category, the oldest of which is 35. Most of these are famous stallions which were born in Iceland and which horse enthusiasts are likely to remember but haven’t seen in years.

The Icelandic horse is gaining popularity around the world; in December the first Icelandic horses were sent to the Middle East.
