Open Day at Eldhestar

On April 5th, we welcomed many guests on the Open Day at Eldhestar which was part of the event “Secrets of the South”. The program included special offers for riding tours and accommodation, a horse show and free riding for children, which was very popular.

Of course visitors are always welcome to have a look around, pet our horses and enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and home baked cake while watching what’s going on in our riding hall.

Staff Competition

Last Friday, March 28th, the first „Eldhestar Local“ tölt competition took place in our new riding hall. The idea to this event came up after wintertraining had started in January and we thought it would be fun to train together for a tournament and also get some valuable feedback from judges about our performance.

Eldhestar‘s stable crew participated mostly with horses owned by Eldhestar and the office crew got the chance to train their own horses at our excellent facilities for a few days before the competition.

Every participant had to ride individually, showing slow tölt, then changing direction and showing speed changes and fast tölt. In the finals, this programm had to be shown in both directions.

We enjoyed this event so much that we are already planning Eldhestar Local 2.

We congratulate the winner Marlene Thies with Suðri frá Reykavík!
