“Saksun is magical. I've ridden there almost every day for my whole life. It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the area is,” says Beinta. I mostly ride out in nature. Sometimes I compete with gaited horses but only on a basic level for fun.” Beinta got her first horse at age four, and started hacking out on her own at age six. She was the only one in the village who had horses so she rode alone for almost 30 years. She says it can be a bit lonely riding on your own, so she usually takes her other horses along on the rides—they just run along freely. Now she's the first and only educated farrier in the country so far. 

BEINTA’S ICELANDIC HORSE

Jógvansdóttir is riding Hrimir Frá Stafafelli, a purebred Icelandic horse. "He was born and raised in Iceland but was sold to Austria, then Denmark, before he ended up with me on the Faroe Islands. He is a very friendly and sweet horse. His gaits are excellent, so it's a real treat to ride him, especially in tolt, which is one of the two extra gaits the Icelandic horses have."
