In Skagafjörður we'll also look forward to stop by at Elvar Einarsson, Fjóla Viktorsdóttir and their lovely daughters, Ásdís Ósk, Viktoría Eik and Sigríður Elva, who are the owners of the farm:
When we visited the family last year, Elvar told us about how they combine being sheep farmers and horse trainers. And in 2017 they have been training and riding the whole year:
We have been to many competitions this year, and especially our daughters have performed very well. They rode at the Fjórðungsmót, Íslandsmót and etc, and always ended up in finals.
We also have some new promising mares and geldings that we started training this year. A daughter of Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili by the name of Karta is probably the most interesting one. She is out of one of our breeding mares, which is a daughter of Kolfinnur frá Kjarnholtum. We did not take her to a breeding show because unfortunately she was injured.
We have a very promising 4-year-old stallion that we started training a little last winter. His name is Muni frá Syðra-Skörðugili, F: Konsert frá Korpu M: Mön frá Lækjamóti. Mön was a very successful competition mare in our family for many years. Muni is a four-gaited horse with very nice and high movements.
We got 6 foals this year in total. They are after: Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili, Spuni frá Vesturkoti and Lávarður frá Syðra-Skörðugili (Half brother of Nökkvi , M: Lára and F: Álfur). The stallions we used this year was mostly Nökkvi and Muni. Also, we had one mare that went to Viti frá Kagaðarhóli. We are looking forward to see the results next summer.
Our family will be very happy to have the Horse Expo group for a visit. They can expect a good chat, a warm welcome and some good food!
