Whether show jumping, dressage, leisure, driving or therapy - no discipline is too difficult for the versatile Icelandic pony. In contrast to most other horse breeds it also has two additional gaits: the tolt and the pass. Both are very pleasant to ride and also surprisingly fast. Tournaments for Icelandic ponies are therefore usually held at special racecourses. Here they can show their gaits in a particularly beautiful way. The Icelandic ponies even have their own world championship.
