We are very happy with our Katla saddle from Hilbar Germany that is a result of cooperation between us here in Gangmyllan and Júlio Borba.
Now we are working on another saddle with Júlio Borba that we are very excited about In some weeks we will have a few more Katla saddles for sale, but the first saddles sold out in a few weeks.
Just finished a great clinic with Júlio Borba, it was a pleasure as always.

We are proud and happy that Júlio Borba was willing to compete in Gæðingafimi in Meistaradeild last night.
I think it is clear that he went far out of his comfort zone and is very brave to have done that.
Júlio did a great job and we think and hope that he showed everyone watching a nice picture of the future.

Álffinnur in Stockholm International Horse Show at Friends Arena last Saturday night ♥️
Here is a picture of almost all the riders participating in the Tölt show at the Friends Arena in Sweden last week. Everyone is dressed up as a volcano. Vignir Jónasson is missing from the picture but his outfit is there.
This week Bergur and me rode in Sweden International Horse Show. We took part in the International Team competition, Bergur riding Ómi frá Úlfljótsvatni in 4 gate to the third place an I rode Álffinnur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum in 5 gate witch we won. In the team competition we got the third place witch was won by Denmark, Sweden got second place and Germany was in forth place.
It was really great and funny to take part in this competition, well arranged, great competitors, super track and fabulous audience.
Thank you, here are some pictures on the Sweden international horse show site.
Shoeing the three year olds for the first time, it started up really well but needed a bit more support in the end. They learn quick but patience is maybe not their strongest skill.
