About us

UC Hestar was founded in 2022 by Martta Uusitalo and Sandy Carson. Both have graduated from Hólar University in Iceland as riding instructors and horse trainers (B.Sc). Our training and teaching are based on horse-friendly, tested and science-backed techniques. Martta is from Finland and Sandy from Scotland.

We have both been around Icelandic horses since childhood and have spent most of our lives now riding, training, competing and learning with the Icelandic horse.

We started our operations in early summer 2022 and since then we have been receiving horses in training and offering riding lessons.


We run our business from a modern and well-equipped stable with large boxes and good turnout areas. Our riding arena is a good size with horse friendly surface that is good in all weathers. It is possible to ride for many hours in the forests and sand roads surrounding the stable.
