What is Landsmót

Landsmot is the national Icelandic horse competition held in Iceland.  Since no horses can enter Iceland, competition is limited (if one can say that about the national Icelandic horse competition) to horses in Iceland. Lansmot is held in even numbered years and the World Championships for Icelandic horses is held in Europe in add numbered years.  And yes, the US has been sending both riders and horses to the WC for several years now.
Here is a link to information about the 2014 Landsmot.

I am not sure why the gentlemen are riding without shirts in the video below.  Perhaps it was a bet.
