The Riding school was establised in 1979 in Ölvaldsstöðum. The school is run by Guðrún from July to the end of August. She specialises in teaching children age 6 and up. The riding school lasts for 5 days, from 1pm to 4 pm. Students are required to bring lunch with them which is consumed in beautiful surroundings half way through the ride. All students learn how to harness, comb and saddle the horse.
Guðrún uses the landscape surrounding Ölvaldsstaði to teach the students how to balance on the horse by going up and down hills and in and around water.

  • Riding helmet

Students should bring:

  • Waterproof footwear
  • Windbreaker/warm jacket
