In the remote Icelandic valley, there is not much to do other than observe the horses, the neighbors, and the neighbors' horses with binoculars. Undisturbed, the stallions and mares do what nobody else in the valley dares to even talk about: love. However, there is still a feeling of love among some of the valley dwellers. Kolbeinn (Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson) and Solveig's (Charlotte Bøving) attempts at love are the subject of much interest for the valley dwellers.

Meanwhile, Vernhardur (Steinn Ármann Magnússon), who has a weakness for liquor, makes a name for himself on a Russian fishing vessel with the sailor Gengis (Kash Erden Baater). There is often disagreement about the riding routes between Grimur (Kjartan Ragnarsson) and Egill (Helgi Björnsson); Grimur generally prefers the classic routes on horseback, whereas Egill prefers riding through rough terrain on his tractor. Jóhanna (Sigríður María Egilsdóttir), on the other hand, has nothing to say concerning her mare Raudka. One day, she encounters an injured old man. The religious Juan Camillo (himself) is seeking God on a high spiritual level.

Above all, all the people in the valley share a love of their horses, and eventually come to understand one another.

    Robbie Collin described Of Horses and Men as a "collection of six-or-so interlocking fables about a group of rural Icelanders’ relationships with their horses and each other, and which run the gamut from stony-black comedies of sex and death to chilly meditations on the blind cruelty of fate." He gave it four stars out of five and called it "something truly and seductively strange" and "tenderly attuned to the weather and landscape, both of which are captured in you-could-almost-be-there vividness, and underscored by a heady swirl of choral works and primal drumming."
