Our annual Laxnes Distance Cup is an endurance race showcasing the strength and endurance of the Icelandic horse and sponsored by Icelandair.
This competition is held in Germany and Sweden annually with winning prices being a gift certificate from Icelandair for a flight Iceland along with tour packages in Iceland and trophy.
The race itself isn’t daunting though. It’s a 20 kilometer trail with heavy penalties if you ride faster than the horse can take. To win you have to work with your horse, know it’s strengths and keep a steady pace. Even just one penalty point is enough to loose the lead!
