We had some great times.:
We had greaW
While trainin today we noticed that more than half of the horses in the riding hall were from Hellubær and that Vaka, that great gæðingur is the mother of them all. We had to taka a picture of course. Far left is Váli going 6y old sire Kiljan from Steinnes then Viðátta going 5y old sire Ljóni from Ketilsstaðir and the youngest one is nn. going 4y old sire Brimnr from Ketilsstaðir. Vaka was an endless gæðingur and I think she has the highest score for riding abilities as a 4y old 4 gaiter ever with a total score of 8,48, there of 9,5 for trot, canter and slow tempo canter and 9,0 for tölt, form under rider and willingness. Vakas mother is Gola frá Hellubæ who is a daughther of Gáski from Hofsstaðir and Feykir from Hafsteinsstaðir. Four of Vakas offsprings have got 1st price. We are very lucky to have a fourgaited daughther of hers in our breeding, her name is Védís with 9,5 for slow tempo tolt and slow tempo canter like her mother and brother, Vestri from Hellubær. A precious quality when it is hard to find horses with good canter.
Two years since our advertisement with a picture of Bergur and Katla were put on the wall in the riding hall of Sprettur. Tonight Bergur and Katla won the Gæðingafimi discipline in the masters league helt in the same ridinghall.
First winter competition of the year in our club Sleipnir was helt yesterday, it was a tölt competition and in the open class Brynja was the winner. She was riding Goði frá Ketilsstöðum 7 years old, dam is Vænting frá Ketilsstöðum and sire Álfinnur frá Syðri Gegnishólum. Freyja was in third place riding Bylgja frá Ketilsstöðum 11 years old, dam is vakning frá Ketilsstöðum and sire is Álfasteinn frá Selfossi.
Here are some pictures taken last thursday night at the first disciplin in the Masters League 2017. We had great results for our team, Gangmyllan. All three horses got into the A finals. Elin and Frami won, Bergur and Katla got second place and Freyja and Álfastjarna got the fifth place.
Not to forget that we won the award given to team with best results in 4 gate.
