Gola

January 2011:  Gola went home to her
family's farm. Thanks to her family for 
lending her to us, and for providing her 
with an opportunity for “winter camp”. 

  • Date of Birth: January 1, 1999
  • Breed: Icelandic Horse (although we often refer to Gola as an Icelandic Pony, most Icelandic breeders prefer that the breed be referred to as "Icelandic Horse")
  • Height: 13.2
  • Color: Bay
  • Markings: Star
  • Owner: Sue Koos-Acker (lease)
  • Arrived at Three Gaits: May 2008

  • School Horse Specialty: Gola's steady temperament, size, sturdy build
    (although they're small, Icelandic Horses are expected to be able to carry
    full sized adults without difficulty) and smooth gaits make her an ideal
    candidate for Three Gaits.
  • Previous Life: Gola was owned by Susan's sister in Washington. Susan
    promised her sister that she and her siblings would take care of Gola and
    together they brought Gola back to Wisconsin. Gola has been used
    extensively for trail riding and loves to be outside!
  • Did you know?: Icelandic Horses are known for their special gaits and can
    have three (least desirable), four or five gaits...Gola can perform all five
    gaits common to Icelandic Horses. Aside from being able to walk, trot and
    canter, most Icelandic horses are able to tölt, and some perform a gait
    called "skeiğ" or "flugskeiğ" in Iceland, but here it's referred to as a
    pace or flying pace.
