While trainin today we noticed that more than half of the horses in the riding hall were from Hellubær and that Vaka, that great gæðingur is the mother of them all. We had to taka a picture of course. Far left is Váli going 6y old sire Kiljan from Steinnes then Viðátta going 5y old sire Ljóni from Ketilsstaðir and the youngest one is nn. going 4y old sire Brimnr from Ketilsstaðir. Vaka was an endless gæðingur and I think she has the highest score for riding abilities as a 4y old 4 gaiter ever with a total score of 8,48, there of 9,5 for trot, canter and slow tempo canter and 9,0 for tölt, form under rider and willingness. Vakas mother is Gola frá Hellubæ who is a daughther of Gáski from Hofsstaðir and Feykir from Hafsteinsstaðir. Four of Vakas offsprings have got 1st price. We are very lucky to have a fourgaited daughther of hers in our breeding, her name is Védís with 9,5 for slow tempo tolt and slow tempo canter like her mother and brother, Vestri from Hellubær. A precious quality when it is hard to find horses with good canter.

This is Gormur from Selfoss, our first offspring of Sveinn-Hervar frá Þúfu. Gormur lives now in Gotland Sweden and is owned and trained by Sara Lundberg, who has worked here at Gangmyllan for few years. Gormur is 16 years old now and in good shape. He was breeding evaluated at 6 years old as a gelding with total score of 8,22, 9,0 for trot,spirit and expression and 8,5 for the rest except pace. 8 years old he was in the B group finals at Landsmót. This horse I bred before Sveinn-Hervar received his 1 price breeding evaluation. Since then he has given us a lot of great 4 gaters as for example Framtið, Frami, Spes, Fálmar and Gormur's full brother Gramur. We still breed with this great stallion, next year we are expecting two of his offsprings from the sisters Álfadís and Aðaldís.

While organizing some old photos I found those two good ones. They were taken at Landsmót 1990 in Vindheimamelar where me and Bergur go into the A finals with the exact same score, 8,70.

In the finals, Bergur and Hugmynd frá Ketilsstöðum did better with the sixth place while me and Sörli from Skjólbrekka ended in seventh place.

26 years have passed since then...

Álffinnur and Olil were competing for Iceland on the Sweden international horse show this year. They got second place and the title "best five gaiter". It was just as nice as we had hoped. Thank you so much for inviting Olil to ride and compete Álffinnur for Iceland, on Sweden international horse show.

With the highest score from one of the three judges and a 9 for pace I'm more than happy. this was a perfect end of the competition year 2016, Ketilsstaðir/Syðri Gegnishólar.

Now that this breeding evaluation season has come to an end, it’s fun to look at the results.

This year 18 horses from our breed were breeding evaluated with good results. 17 of them 1st prized and one below. Exactly half of them were shown as four gaiters, with 5.0 for pace. It’s fun to mention that nine of these eighteen horses have both mothers and fathers bred by us.

16 were evaluated in Iceland and 2 in Germany. 9 of those who were shown in Iceland qualified for Landsmót, but we decided to show 7 of them there.

These 7 horses were shown at Landsmót and 4 of them were in the top 10 of their class. Álfarinn received 8.63 and the 7th place in the class of 7 years and older stallions, Álfastjarna received 8.43 and the 8th place in the class of 6 years old mares, Álfgrímur received 8.46 and the 6th place in the class of 5 years old stallions and Huldumær received 8.29 and the 4th place in the class of 4 years old mares.

We showed four 4 years old mares this year and all of them got 1st prize which we believe is very good.

It’s also worth mentioning the outstanding success of Álfadís frá Selfossi that achieved having offsprings in all 4 age groups in breeding classes at Landsmót. All of them were in top 10 in their class and two of them four gaited. Her son Álffinnur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum also received 1st prize for offspring and the second place at Landsmót.

Another thing that was very special is that 24% of horses in breeding classes qualified for Landsmót could be traced to Álfadís, only 16 years ago she herself was a star at Landsmót in Reykjavík four years old.

Her son Álfarinn frá Syðri-Gegnishólum was our highest judged horse this year and started off well as a breeding stallion when his oldest and only offspring born in 2012, Lygna received 8.02 in total 4 years old.

The average of our 18 horses for conformation is 8.21, for ridden abilities 8.30 and 8.27 in total. The average age is 5.5 years and 17 of 18 1st prized.

These are the evaluation results this year:

Álfarinn frá Syðri-Gegnishólum 7 years old 8,65

Katla frá Ketilsstöðum 8 years old 8,52

Stúdent frá Ketilsstöðum 6 years old 8,47
