Welcome to Fitjamyri Icelandic Horses
At Fitjamyri, we have been breeding and selling Icelandic Horses for over 45 years, developing our blood lines and producing very high quality horses. Indeed we are the only farm in Canada to have horses from our lines awarded First Prize in an Internationally recognized FEIF evaluation, and our horses have done it seven times!
Two First Prize mares of our breeding even competed at the Icelandic World Championships, one of the most prestigious Icelandic horse events in the world. Blika in Denmark in 2015 and Maja in Germany in 2013 (where she received 4th place!).
We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and proud to offer these amazing Icelandic horses for sale.
