The Icelandic horse is a breed of pony that has lived in Iceland since the mid-ninth century, having been brought to the island by Viking settlers. The Icelandic horse is basically a man-made breed as it is a mixture of breeds and crossbreeds which were taken from Scandinavian and European countries to Iceland during the original and subsequent settlements.

Horses played a significant part in Norse mythology, and several horses played major roles in the Norse myths. Skalm, a mare who is the first Icelandic horse known by name, appeared in the Book of Settlements from the 12th century. Horses also play key roles in the Icelandic literature of Hrafnkel’s Saga, Njal’s Saga and Grettir’s Saga. Although written in the 13th century, these three sagas are set as far back as the 9th century. This early lore has an influence today, with many riding clubs and horse herds in modern Iceland still bearing the names of horses from Norse mythology.
