When an Icelandic Horse leaves Iceland it can never return
 By Winniefield Park   •   31st Oct 2020   •   1,616 views   •   0 comments


When an Icelandic Horse leaves Iceland it can never return. But they are highly sought after around the world and almost half of the foals born in Iceland will be exported to other countries. Getting ready to head to their new homes takes a lot of planning and preparation. This short video follows the journey of several Icelandic Horses from their home stables, to the waiting plane.

Did you know that Icelandic horses do not require any vaccines in their homeland. Due to the strict import-export equine laws there is not a threat of communicable diseases that would require vaccination.
