Sprettur is a 6 year old gelding who has been in training for the last couple of years. He is very friendly and inquisitive, and a pleasure to both be around and ride. He is five-gaited, and has both a great tölt and canter which can be performed at different speeds.
Sprettur is also light on the rein and carries himself really well. He is easy-going out on the trails, and gets along well with other horses. Like all horses we sell, Sprettur is easy to work with from the ground too. He did tear his tendon approx. 4 years ago, and although he still has some scar-tissue, this doesn’t affect his gaits.
Sprettur is ready to go to his new home and is 12.3k (GST included). This includes a weekend workshop for new owners at Neðri Bakki.
Feel free to contact us if you’d like to come and see him, or one of the other horses we have for sale! firstname.lastname@example.org
Eldmist is a 10 ½-year-old, red-dun mare. She is 5 gaited with a clear tölt ranging from medium-slow to fast when asked. Eldmist also has a very nice forward trot. She is energetic and a pleasure to ride, both on the arena and out on the trails. She responds really well to the aids, and is generally nice and light on the rein. Eldmist is easy-going with both horses and people. She has had two foals so far – both red-dun fillies.
Eldmist is ready to go to her new home now and is 10.5k (GST included).

Heykir from Neđri Bakka is a relatively tall, brown-black gelding from 2011. He is a lightly-built horse, who is willing and usually seeks trot. Heykir has a very inquisitive nature and is very easy-going both when ridden, and in the stables. We wish Heykir and his new owner all the best!
All Black is a black gelding, born in spring 2011 at Neđri Bakki. He is a lightly built, medium sized horse. All Black has an easy to find, smooth and natural tölt. He has, like most Icelandic horses, an energetic walk, and his canter is strong and well defined. We wish All Black and his new owner all the best for the future!

In the beginning of December (4-6th) we hosted our annual Icelandic Horse clinic here at Neđri Bakki. We had two trainers, Guðbjörg Matthíasdóttir and Ólöf Rún Guðmundsdóttir, coaching participants throughout the weekend. Guðbjörg and Ólöf both graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Riding & Riding Instruction from Hólar University in Iceland, the official centre for education and research in horse-breeding and horsemanship. They had many exciting and innovative approaches when working with the Icelandics, and provided excellent expertise!
We had a successful turnout with seven participants in total, and we were lucky with the lasting good weather. Both of the trainers had been working with all of the horses for varying periods before-hand, and the aim of the clinic was to work towards goals that the riders set, as well as increasing the knowledge of participants about the training of Icelandic Horses and how to do so in an enjoyable way for both rider and horse.
Eldfim has delivered the first foal of the season- a chestnut with blaze filly. Eldfim turned 20 years old this year, and this foal is her 12th foal, and 11th filly so far! We are still considering names for newest addition to Nedri Bakki.
