Monday Ice: Kraftur - The Last Ride

Horses here are the original breed since the 9th century.  To preserve the breed and protect from disease the law does not allow any horses/sheep to enter the country.  So if an Icelandic horse leaves the country to participate in a competition,  it can never return.  Click on the pic for a touching video which was filmed here in Skagafjörður a few years ago about a horse called Kraftur and his rider Þórarinn Eymundsson.  English subtitles, enjoy.
