The Horse Theater - Legends of Sleipnir
During "The Legends of Sleipnir Show" you will be introduced to the unique story of the Icelandic horse, its distinctive features, and its important role in Icelandic history and culture.
The show weaves together history, old Norse mythology, and exhibition riding to demonstrate the Icelandic horse's beauty and uniqueness. The name of the show refers to Norse mythology, according to which the Icelandic horse descends from the greatest horse of all time, Sleipnir the eight-legged horse of Odinn.
The stage itself is the biggest in Iceland (1600 m2) and lit up with first-class theater lighting and has a 40 meter long screen serving as a backdrop for the performance. The result is a magical theatrical experience that emphasizes the Icelandic horse's special features and pays tribute to its historical relationship with humans throughout Iceland's history.
