Welcome to the Islandpferdehof Seppensen.

Our farm is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Germany, the national park of Lüneburger Heide. It contains about 600 km of bridle paths across fields, forests and moorland. It was already in 1957 when we started breeding Iceland Horses so our farm belogs to the pioneers who made the race popular in Germany during the early 1960s.
Competece and long-term experience flow into our breeding activities and also into our close contacts with people. Our farm is well known for excellent rider-horse-relationships.

The purchase of a horse is always a matter of trust! Therefore our breeding activities are based on reliable horses with flawless character, excellent riding skills with much Tölt. A huge variety of horses is available. These are coached by our horse trainers (IPZV Coach A and prospective IPZV Coach B) in relation to manifold purposes in the field of leisure activities and competitions. The site contains a dressage square, oval course, a lunge circle and a riding hall with boxes/paddocks for guest horses.

Optimal breeding on vast meadows (120 hectare) leads to social-strong and balanced horses. Our highly qualified coaches offer individual single- and group-lessons, as well as workshops with different emphases all over the year.

As special highlight we offer guided rides for the sake of fun and relaxation. Close to nature wander rides into the moorland and the mud flats of the North Sea as well as well organised riding holidays at Iceland or on the island Norderney makes hearts beat faster.

There are two rooms with view over the paddocks at our guest house which are available to people who like to stay here over night. Furthermore a comfortable lounge with fireplace and seperate kitchenette is at our guest' s disposal.

No matter how old you are, if you're beginner, re-entry level or ambitious sport rider - we sincerely welcome you and look forward to meet you.

Our foals 2015

Maybe you have already seen this year's first foals on this page. Those were only a few days old back in June. The mares were such relaxed that is was possible to admire the little ones from close distance. Now they have grown a little but as you can see they are still as sweet as in early summer...
