Nedri Bakki Icelandic Horse Center was the host of a clinic which took place on the 22nd and 23rd of November with featuring certified riding teacher and Icelandic horse trainer from Hólar and certified international breeding judge Herdís Reynisdóttir (Dísa). The clinic was arranged in the framework of IHBRANZ. Nine keen Icelandic horse owners from both the North and the South Island in New Zealand participated in the clinic which consisted of both theory and training.
The theoretical program included sessions on horse behaviour, biomechanical explanations in relation to horse training, and breeding assessment and the training took place in the form of individual sessions on Nedri Bakki’s arena. We had two wonderful days with a lot of important input, discussions and feedback. Dísa (www.disa-ihs.com) is a highly skilled and passionate educator and possesses tremendous knowledge on Icelandic horses, also in terms of latest development in research and training. Time simply flew during the two days of the clinic and the nice weather made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
