What is ‘OutHorsing’ your email?

Answer: When Icelandic horses respond to your work emails for you.

Iceland really, really wants visitors to enjoy its magnificent scenery uninterrupted. So much so, in fact, that it now has trained Icelandic horses to handle your email correspondences for you.

Organized by Visit Iceland, the OutHorse Your Email program lets you choose from three specially trained Icelandic horses to craft replies to your emails. They use special gigantic keyboards that they can walk on in order to type. One “types fast, but might take a nap,” while another is “assertive” and “efficient.” Or you can pick the “friendly” horse who’s “trained in corporate buzzwords.”

Once you’ve selected your horse and told them when you’ll be on vacation, you’ll need to share your email address and agree to the terms and conditions. After that, you’re all set to explore Iceland uninterrupted. Or you could just, you know, turn off your email notifications — but this is far more entertaining.
