I really wish I could have gone horseback riding in the Norwegian mountains right now. I did a few times, and always wants to go back.
Most of these pictures are from meeting the riders when I was in the mountains for other reasons. And most of the times the riders were led by Dyrhaug Ridesenter, that is the Dyrhaug family who have organized riding trips in the Norwegian mountains for more than 30 years. On the picture below I was myself one of the gang, but only for one marvelous day.
People come from many countries to go riding in the wilderness for a week or a weekend. Some again and again, like the Swedish actor Kim Anderzon in the picture above. She told me she have had a lot of horses at home, but still she have to go riding in the mountains. The picture is from Schulzhytta, one of the many cabins owned by the Norwegian Trekking Association, and often used by riders. The first pictures are riders from the icelandic horse organization in Mid-Norway. And by the way, most people riding in these mountains use icelandic horses. They are small, tough and beautiful. More pictures in this photo gallery. And many more in this photo gallery from Tydal. Also from Patrusli Gaard who is another family that provide mountain riding in this area.
