We presended our saddle Gangmyllan Katla from Hilbar Germany at the world Championships.
We have high expectations for this saddle in the future.
Katla received her fourth 10 today in a breeding evaluation at Hella.
Katla has now received 10 for tölt, trot, slow tölt and spirit.
In the video, Bergur and Katla are competing in the Masters League 2017 in fourgait.
Katla received 3x10´s in a breeding evaluation today.
The sun was shining and Katla was at the top of her game. She received 10 for trot, slow tölt and spirit. Katla is currently being bred so this is hopefully the beginning of a new chapter.
This favorite and outstanding 4 year old mare Hugmynd frá Ketilsstöðum got a great breeding evaluation at Hella yesterday.
Her total score is 8,32. She received 8,02 for confirmation and 8,52 for ridden abilities.
Dam is Djörfung frá Ketilsstöðum with a total score of 8,23, 4 years old including 8,69 for ridden abilities. Sire is Aðall frá Nýjabæ who needs I believe only two more judged off springs to reach honorary prize for off springs. For fun it's nice to tell that her grand mother and great grandmother both received honorary prize for off springs
Indira Scherrer riding Matthildur frá Ketilsstöðum did great on the Swiss Championships. They were the the Swiss Champions in Tölt T5 and 4 gate combination, childrens class, third place in dressage and forth place in 4 gate. Biiiiiig congrartulations Indira, Roger, Sandra and Michael.
Some pictures of Elin Holst and Frami frá Ketilsstöðum from the Icelandic Championship 2017. The results was far away from last years three victories but still very good. They ended on the second place in a very strong 4 gate and on the sixth pace in T2. Frami had a injury short time before the championships that we believe had a negative effect on the results.
Offsprings of Álfaklettur are beautiful, some pictures below.
Our oldest Sveinn-Hervar offspring, still going strong in competitions. Gormur fra Selfossi ridden by Sara Lundberg, that worked at Gangmyllan for two years, congratulations to Sara.
Hvati is doing good in California.
This colt is quite handsome isn't he? This pictures was taken a guess within 10 minutes, looks like he loves to pose. Dam is Heilladís frá Selfossi and sire is Krákur frá Blesastöðum.

Huldumær frá Syðri-Gegnishólum was breeding evaluated 4 years old at Landsmót 2016. Her total score was 8,29 and the forth place in the group of 4 years old mares. Straight after Landsmót we bred her with Frami frá Ketilsstöðum and this is the result, a beautiful filly.
I took these nice pictures within the herd the other day. Brynja and Álfhildur were having a moment of quality. Álfhildur is expecting a foal with Frami later this summer, we are very much looking forward to it.
Elin Holst riding Frami frá Ketilsstöðum won B class in the Icelandic 4 gate 8,92/9,11 in an open gæðinga class arranged by our club Sleipnir. From the pictures you can probably see why.
This is Álfaklettur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum, he is a four years old son of Álfadís frá Selfossi and Stáli frá Kjarri. First time for him leaving the farm to be ridden, the trip ended on the track, since we are aiming for getting him breeding evaluated soon.
These two mares of our breed are having good results in Swiss and Germany. Both winning and in the top in T1 and V2. Both mares are breeding evaluated with1st prize and are now competing successfully, with their talented riders.
