Björt frá Völlum

Björt didn’t have an easy time when we took her in for basic training. She perceived everything and everyone as a threat and even with routine and repetition, did not settle down enough for anyone to consider sitting on her for a long time. However, eventually she did calm down, tolerated the saddle and, helped along but trustworthy older gentleman Ingólfur, who is completely impossible to spook and who looks down on nervous youngsters with the fatherly benevolence of a season tour horse, also accepted a rider. In order not to ask too much of her, she was only sat on for a few times before she was released into freedom for another year, to return in autumn, older and hopefully wiser.
