Horses For Sale

Sprettur from Neðri Bakka $12,300

Posted on

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!  husted.kenneth@gmail.com

Eldmist is easy-going with both horses and people. She has had two foals so far – both red-dun fillies.

Eldmist would be best suited to the more confident rider, and is ready to go to her new home now! The price is 12.5k (GST included) – this includes a weekend workshop for new owners at Neðri Bakki.

Icelandic Horse Clinic 2015

Posted on

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 Rúnworkshop 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.
