The Icelandic Horse is well known for being sure footed and for its ability to cross over rough terrain. They are small horses, sometimes almost pony size, but they are still referred to as horses. They are not easily spooked since they do not have many natural predators in their natural habitat. They are also naturally docile, easy to handle and friendly. It takes them until the age of 7 to reach their full structural development, but they still retain their strength and stamina into their twenties. They are also known to live for many years, the oldest one recorded lived to be 56.
