Elska is a little horse with a big personality. She loves people and attention. She’s the first to the fence line to say hello. She is suitable for a beginner adult or an experienced child with supervision.


Elska was bred by Mark Dempson in WA. Her sire is Kappi from Mt. Spokane Icelandic and her dam is Fenja from Harlanda. She was purchased and started under saddle at 6yrs old by her first owner, an older lady in her 70s. They enjoyed trail riding together most days till the owner had health issues. She was purchased last year by my friend. She loves trail riding with Elska but can no longer ride or care for her due to new health issues.   


Elska is very sweet and kind. She is very easy to catch, leads, ties, and trailers well. She enjoys being groomed and loved on. She knows basic ground work and lunging. Elska would love a human that will frequently spend time with her. She really enjoys coming out for any kind of attention. She has been pastured with mares, geldings, minis, dogs and goats with no issues. Dogs roll balls between under her feet and goats walk right under her belly. She never moves. She’s comfortable living out or coming into a stall with run at night. Elska is an easy keeper and is currently eating orchard grass and teff hay.


Elska is easy to ride and loves to go down the trail. Elska is four gaited and can walk, trot, canter, and tölt. She is very smooth and prefers to walk and tölt under saddle. She has been mainly ridden by older ladies needing a safe mount. Elska is happy to go out alone or in a group. She will go in the front, back or middle. Elska is brave and will try any challenge you point her at. She’s good on her feet over technical trail. She has been ridden in a bareback saddle and an English saddle. She is happy to go in a bitless bridle or in a snaffle. Elska will happily move out when asked but has more woah than go. Elska enjoys doing obstacles courses and is not spooky. Road and traffic safe. She has no vices.


Elska is currently in front shoes. She was last shod on April 15, 2022


Elska is healthy with no maintenance or issues. She had no past history of health or lameness issues.  She saw the vet on Feb 1, 2022 for a dental, worming and her vaccines.
