About Einar thor
Einar Þór has been into horses since childhood. He has been training, shoeing and breeding horses since he was a teenager. The stable is his favorite place and he loves to talk about horses. For many years he worked as the stable manager at a big horse rental and has occasionally been a riding instructor. He lives in the small but beautiful community at Álftanes (close to Reykjavik) with his wife and four daughters. They are all dedicated and successful equestrians! Álftanes provides lovely rides in beautiful settings with rides along the beach and perfect views of the mountains around. Oval track on site.
What will Einar Þór do for his buddy:
I will pick you up at the hotel and take you to my stables and introduce you to my horses. I usually have about 12 horses at my stable that belong to me and my family. We will pick the suitable horse for you and find all the equipment you need. We go for a ride on the oval track so that you can get a good connection to your horse. Then we will head off on the soft riding tracks around Álftanes. We will go along the beach and tölt and galopp on soft meadows with beautiful views of City of Reykjavík and the surrounding mountains. On the way we might spot some seals at the shore. Afterwards we will take care of the horses and will talk „horses“ over some coffee and cakes. If you like I will take you over to meet my friends at the other stables. On our way back to your hotel I take you on a short historical sightseeing tour of Álftanes peninsula which is not only the place where the Icelandic President has his residence but is also full of history and offers rich bird-life. Looking very much forward to seeing you!
