Here are some pictures from the Gala Show last Saturday night. We, Hafliði Halldórsson, Júlio Borba, Olil Amble and Bergur Jónsson managed to keep our promise and focus on nice riding and beautiful music. After a lot of preparing and a lot of training we presented Júlio Borbas Quadrille,we bealieve it has never been showed before. All the five gates of the Icelandic horse and exercises like shoulder in, leg yields and halfpasses, hind quarters out and travers. 11 horses and riders focusing on distances, rythm, gates, xercices and great music. Many of the best riders in the world participated in the show, Landsmót winners, Icelandic Champions, world champions and other famous horses. Fákasel is made as a horse theatre and the spotlight and light variation made a great atmosphere together with the live music the beautiful and talented couple Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir singer and her husband and gitarplayer Davíð Sigurgeirsson presented. The audience was great and the atmosphere in the ridinghall was partly magical, thank you so much to everybody that took part in making this a outstanding evening.

We are very pleased with the welcome and criticism that we have received for our demonstration The Clinic A-Z, modern riding art and our Gala Show. Both sold out 24 hours before, everything went great and we managed to present our goal. We will write about the Gala Show soon, still waiting for pictures.
In our opinion, this is something we need to do more of, meet in order to enjoy our wonderful breed, The Icelandic Horse. Put focus on and appreciate more than action and speed. The Icelandic horse has so much, much more than five gaits. Everything from beeing a tough Viking, who comes calmly walking the day after a crazy storm like nothing has happened. His powerfull wide gates with high movements, making him a great competition and show horse. His ability to move smoothly and comfortably taking care of a child or a beginner. Beeing able to be a great riding and free time horse and.... he can also dance like a ballerina in all kinds of exercises. We feel the need to increase the training and the glory of the slow gates and that itself will participate in lifting our horse to a higher level.
With this demonstration, we wanted to share with you what we have been working on and dedicated to riding for the past 15 years. Júlio Borba our teacher has been on horseback since he remembers and his father and uncle along with Louis Valenca were his mentors and Masters. Júlio Borba was a rider of the Royal Portuguese riding school for 12 years and showed all the exercises of the school riding the famous Portuguese Lusitanó breed. After leaving the Portugese riding school, he has worked continuously as a riding teacer worldwide and is believed to have had a major impact on the training of the Icelandic horse.
We wanted to show how much training matters, enjoy the little progress, and try to convey that the horse's happiness consists in, among other things, understanding and being able to do his work, the more he understands the more confident and happy he becomes. We want to try to increase the understanding of how muck our horse can improve by training and always using the same language, many small things make one big difference. Making people enjoy even more their own riding horse.
The goal was that it would be a great day for everyone, the audience, the staff, the riders, and everyone who took part in this show. Great emphasis was placed on heating inside the interconnected exhibition area, which is a real base in modern indoor riding.
Plenty to drink and eat for EVERYONE and a place to rest and chat when opportunities came. Thanks to all the great people who sponsored this show with financial donations and work, without you, this would not have come true. It was a great collaboration, with an incredible number of people working hard, almost day and night to put things in the way we wanted them to be.
We feel grateful to get to know and work with such wonderful and dedicated people. Everything from riding the show to cleaning and performing all other work. Thanks to all of you, there were geniuses in every job.
These writings accompany photos from the demonstration, we are still waiting for the pictures from the Gala Show to be ready for publication .

Dugur frá Ketilsstöðum had a grand welcoming from his new owner and rider in Swiss, Indira Scherrer. It's beautiful to see, dam is the Honor priced mare Djörfung and sire is Ljóni frá Ketilsstöðum which just received 1. price for offsprings. For fun Djörfung and Ljóni are both offsprings of Álfasteinn frá Selfossi.

We are very proud that three horses from our breeding received the Honors Award for offsprings 2019. Those are Álfasteinn from Selfoss, Önn and Prýði frá Ketilsstöðum. Then Ljóni frá Ketilsstöðum(son of Álfasteinn), was awarded 1 prize for offsprings.
In fact, Alfasteinn met the qualifications for an honourary Award in 2011 and has met them ever since but due to incomprehensible rules they are not delivered until now.
None of these horses are in our possession anymore, as we are breeders who need to sell our horses to make a living.
Álfasteinn and Ljóni are in Denmark, Álfasteinn left the country in 2007 and Ljóni 2013. It is nice to note however, that both these horses reached the limits only on offsprings born in Iceland to begin with. Even Álfasteinn has long time proved to breederes abroad that he is a outstanding breeding stallion. It will be interesting to see if this award will give Ljóni the attention he deserves.

It was really nice to be invited to take part in Júlio Borba’s clinic at Friends Arena Sweden Horse Show together with Kjerstin Dahlberg. The theme was A horse is a horse, does not matter which breed, you can train them the same way. Kjerstin rode Vulcao, a Lusitano horse and I was riding Álffinnur frá Syðri -Gegnishólum. We rode exercises as Júlio explained, in the end we changed horses to show that a rider is a rider. We had a great time.

This young stallion is 3 years old, Dam is Álfhildur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum and sire is Meginn frá Ketilsstöðum. There he is having look at grandma Álfadís frá Selfossi and mother Álfhildur, it would be acceptable for us if he would try to be like them.

This was a good move, to get all the shoes in order, normally they lie in buckets and boxes on the floor making it difficult to reuse them.
