Editor of Eiðfaxi International Hilda Karen Garðarsdóttir says: “We want to bring news, travel stories and interviews to all our readers abroad, straight from the birth country of the Icelandic horse. We are also very proud of our country, the magnificent landscape and scenery, as is evident in the photos we have selected. Because there are so many other horse breeds in the world, we want to highlight the Icelandic horse’s qualities: Its special gaits, size and spirit, all of which make it unique.”
