Steen Icelandic Horses

Established in 1990, Steen Icelandic Horses is a 12 acre farm located near the town of Slocan in the beautiful Slocan Valley, British Columbia. We breed, raise, train, promote and sell Icelandic Horses. TTEAM/TTouch Training, riding lessons/clinics, starting young horses and farrier services are available on site. 

Nestled in the picturesque Valhalla and Selkirk Mountains

Upon arrival you are greeted with the sight of a large comfy log home and spacious post and beam barn. Picturesque corrals and pastures are surrounded by the forested majesty of the Valhalla and Selkirk Mountains.

A quiet, relaxing atmosphere for horses and riders

Bordering the farm is a beautiful Rail Trail with excellent footing, river views and a bird sanctuary. This trail runs the length of the Slocan Valley and ends at nearby Slocan Lake, a stunning spot with a gazebo for picnics and beach access for the horses.

Farm amenities and services

An outdoor grass arena provides an area for schooling, with stalls and small pens for initial handling and halter training. A riding and sleighing track connects with miles of trails and dirt roads.

Onsite farrier service is provided by Don Steen. Trained in Oklahoma where there he was called "Forgemaster" by his fellow students, Don is an expert with a gentle hand towards the horses.
