Breeding shows 2022

Eftir Fréttir
This week the last breeding show took place here in Iceland and it’s fun to sum up how the horses from Kjarr have been doing this year.
We are very happy with them doing such an amazing job on the track and look forward to the future of all those talents.
The highlight of the year was Landsmót 2022 where our stallion Sprengur frá Kjarri received 8.27 and placed 7th in the class of five year old stallions.
Now everyone will have a nice fall vacation until the training for the next season starts again. We are already excited to start up the youngsters who will start their career as riding horses this year!

Some of those horses are for sale, don’t hesitate to contact us if you are searching for your future breeding or competition horse.

The Icon of Iceland – photographing the Icelandic horse

Eftir Fréttir

It was fun to work together with Donal Boyd on his film about photographing the Icelandic horse. He took portraits of some of our horses in the riding hall trying out different light and positions. Later Donal also photographed them in motion moving freely on the field and running together on the riding track. If you want to learn more about horse photography and want to see Fjarki, Fimma, Stúfur, Sprengur and the herd in motion you can watch the full movie here.

Viltu auka kjark og þor á baki? Við bjóðum upp á einkatíma til þess að auka vellíðan og jafnvægi á hestbaki. Kennsluhestur er til staðar sem er vel þjálfuður og rólegur. Hægt er að fá einkatíma á honum í reiðhöllinni á Kjarri eða úti á fallegum reiðvegum. Einnig bjóðum við upp á sætisæfingar í hringtaum til þess að bæta ásetu knapans og öryggi hans. Okkar markmið í kennslu er að hjálpa hverjum knapa að bæta sína reiðmennnsku á sínum forsendum. Kennarar eru Eggert Helgason og Larissa Silja Werner, reiðkennarar frá Háskólanum á Hólum. Frekari upplýsingar og tímapantanir fást í gegnum einkaskilaboð eða í síma 8601314 (Eggert)

Stáli frá Kjarri pace

Pace, pace, pace

Eftir Fréttir

The Icelandic horse magazine Eidfaxi reported that 17 horses received the mark 9.5 for pace in this year’s breeding shows around the world. We always have loved horses with good pace – a good five gaiter is our breeding goal and we aim to breed horses with a natural ability to perform well in pace disciplines. So we couldn’t be prouder to notice that five horses in this group of exceptional pace horses nare sired by our very own Stáli frá Kjarri! He scored 9.5 for pace himself when he was shown and we are very happy that he obviously is giving that ability on to his offsprings.

We are congratulating the breeders and owners with these wonderful horses:

Álfaklettur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum

Stolt frá Laugavöllum

Ernir frá Efri-Hrepp
