Áshestar horse rental is located at the farm Stóri-Ás in Borgarfjörður. Áshestar is a small family company owned and run by Höskuldur Kolbeinsson and Ragnhildur Anna Ragnarsdóttir. Höskuldur and Ragnhildur live at the farm with their daughter, Lísbet Lára, and Höskuldur's parents, Kolbeinn and Lára Kristín.

At our horse rental we offer 1 - 1 ½ hour long riding tours in beautiful surroundings. We ride along the banks of the river Hvítá with Eiríksjökull glacier looking down on us and the view is simply amazing.

For those that do not want to go for a long ride we offer a 20-minute ride where someone from our staff leads the horse around the farm.
Áshestar horse rental is a great experience for everybody in your family whether they are experienced riders or beginners. Our goal is to help our guests experience the uniqueness of the Icelandic horse in beautiful Icelandic nature.

Before each tour we go through the basics of riding and controlling a horse. We want our guest to get to know their horse and be confident in the saddle before riding off. In our experience this helps guest feel safer and makes the whole experience even more satisfying.

Opening hours
The horse rental is open from June 1st - September 30th. Tour hours: 10:00, 13:00 and 16:00. Special times might be possible on request!
