Krafla Lava Field are just by the beautiful Lake Myvatn and at Krafla you can really feel the energy of the Lava Fields and the Geothermal Power-plant, while overlooking the calm and beautiful Lake Myvatn Unique nature. Was surprised that nowhere allowed dog, even the walking trails (we didn't bring one and glad of it now).
We came as a couple, but could be easily done with older children.
Bring wam clothes if coming at this time of year as the frost and wind is quite noticeable at the top - although nothing some thermal clothing can fix!
You will see the lava fields from 1970s/80s (The "Krafla fires", descendants of the "Myvatn fires" of 1720s). Our definitive bit guide will help you learn about the different types of bit mouth pieces.A popular feature of many tack shops is the "Bit Wall".This is usually a rather intimidating array of different types of bit, each with different features designed to work in a slightly different way.Trying to decide which is the right bit for your horse can be confusing, but when you look closely, you'll see that there are only two basic types of bit: the Snaffle Bit and the Curb Bit.
Most people assume that because the snaffle is is not, the mouthpiece is what determines whether a particular bit is a snaffle or a curb.
However, according to veteran horse trainer, Jessica Jahiel, the difference between snaffles and curbs has nothing to do with the mouthpiece.
The difference between the two types of bit is that the snaffle is a non-leverage bit and the curb is a leverage bit.
On a snaffle bit, the rein attaches directly to the mouthpiece.
The bit acts with a nutcracker action (provided it is jointed) on the bars of the mouth (the area of gum between the front and back teeth), the corners of the mouth and the tongue.
As the rider takes a contact on the rein, the horse feels an equal amount of contact on the bit in his mouth.
