National Geographic Video--Icelandic Horses in the Highlands

National Geographic has created a video about rounding up the horses in Iceland after their summer spent in the highlands.  This video actually lets you see the rough terrain horse and rider have to navigate to find the horses.  As to why the Icelanders go to all this effort each year, "It is tradition."  Spending the summer in the mountains is regarded as necessary to building the essential Icelandic horse character.

I couldn't embed the video and you may have to watch a commercial but following the link is well worth it.
