Merrimack Valley Icelandics



We have lessons for all ages and riding levels in Boxford. Whether you are a first time rider, a returning rider looking to regain confidence in the saddle, or an experienced rider looking to compete and learn more about the Icelandic horse. I focus on body awareness in the saddle and connection with the horse

to gain harmony. 



We provide education about the Icelandic horse and Icelandic riding style through clinics, lectures, video instruction, private lesson, and guided horseback treks to Iceland.  We also offer instruction and testing clinics for the Knapamerki System  developed by Holar University in Iceland.

Train & Board

We offer full board with turnout at our  boutique barn in Boxford. You can also add training to your board. Our training  program is customized to each client whether you want to train for sport competition, breeding shows, desensitizing to a new environment, post-import adjustment, or simply exercising for mental and physical wellbeing. Click below to learn more about Boarding and Training at Merrimack Valley Icelandics

Our mission is to transform your riding experience

My name is Ebba Meehan, an Icelander who grew up riding and studying Icelandic Horsemanship in the valleys and mountains of Iceland. I am the owner and operator of Merrimack Valley Icelandics. My mission is to have every student, every rider and every boarding owner experience the joy
of the Icelandic Horse breed. As a certified riding instructor, life long equestrian professional,
and Kripalu Yoga teacher, I teach Icelandic-style riding; emphasizing body awareness, confidence, safety, and making
a connection with the Icelandic horse. 
Welcome to my website!


I've been riding, boarding and training with Ebba at MVI for many years. I love the fact that attention is given to both riding ability, and the health of the horse. We participate in many different clinics and riding events to keep learning new and different techniques, and to meet other Icelandic horse lovers. I have some very happy and healthy horses, and have made some great friendships!
