Pony Ride at the River

The pony doesn't mind walking in the water at the river.

Natural Horsemanship

It will be very good to get Icelandic Horse riders, particularly those who are trainers, judges, and / or breeders, who may be certified / professional / FEIF trained / Holar graduates to ride more naturally like this young gal, so that the horse can be shown and evaluated in a more natural state, and gait without mechanical aids.
