Karen Woodrow at Nedri Bakki


Over the last two months – March and April – we had the pleasure to host Karen Woodrow from IceAlexia getting advice from Karenland regularly on our farm. Karen has graduated as horse trainer from the highly demanding Holar College in Iceland. She did an awesome job in sharing both her deep theoretical knowledge and practical skills in both starting young horses and in further training horses with us.


It was extremely valuable to us to gain insights into the latest training methods. Karen has superb pedagogical skills and that made the interaction with her an awesome experience. We have got plenty of inspiration in terms of how to further develop our work with both our young and more mature horses. After Karen got a lot of sun on our arena (and blisters on her feet), she left for Melbourne on her way to India. Let’s see whether she will also find some Icelandics there…
