Hello, and welcome to the official website of the Ontario Icelandic Horse Association (OIHA)!
We hope you enjoy browsing through the site. You will find information on the unique Icelandic Horse breed, and you can learn about our organization and find out what we do. You can also see photos of our members and their horses, along with with videos of the horses doing what comes naturally.
The OIHA was founded in 2001 by a group of Icelandic Horse enthusiasts. The association is still thriving well over a decade later, and our numbers are growing!
Our goals are many: we are proud to promote these very special horses, we want to preserve their unique characteristics and good health, and of course, we enjoy the fellowship that goes along with sharing a common interest.
To know the Icelandic Horse is to love this unique and people-friendly breed. You do not have to own or ride an Icelandic Horse to enjoy the many social and physical benefits associated with our group.
Group rides on gorgeous, public trails are being organized for times when bugs are not in full swing, and a terrific instructional clinic will be held near Ottawa in September and another in October. Plus much more…..we also contribute updates and news about our association to the Ontario Equestrian’s Quarterly WHOA! magazine, so you can look up that.
* If you are interested in joining the OIHA, you can click on the “Join Us” tab above and print a membership form (see instructions on the form).
Here’s to a great riding season!
