Share Our Dream, Ride An Icelandic Horse!

Welcome to Nyhyttan. We, Gittan and Håkan, have lived here in Nyhytte By with our Icelandic horses since 2005. Gittan is not only a qualified B-instructor for Icelandic horses, she competes as well; she is aiming for the Swedish Championships. She is responsible for the horses.

Håkan is the stables’ handyman and has many years of experience in the Scouts. Håkan can organise activities for those who don’t wish to ride.

In the fantastic Bergslagen countryside, full of historic places, we ride in small groups on these wonderful horses. The treks go along forest roads and old lanes that were used for transporting charcoal and iron in times gone by. We may be lucky enough to see birds of prey, cranes, herons, elk and deer and, if we’re really lucky, beaver and lynx. We can arrange basic overnight accommodation, dinner and a bath in a “heitapottur” (hot tub).

Nyhyttans islandshästar – Icelandic horses – is authorised by the Swedish Icelandic Horse Association as an Approved Stable, Approved Trekking and Approved Riding School. We are a registered business and fully insured.
