Dalland horse breeding farm and its horsecenter Dalur is located in Mosfellsbær in a green peaceful lowland surrounded by trees, vegetation, ponds and lakes. No other horse breeding farm is closer to the capital of Iceland. It only takes 15 minutes to drive from the center of Reykjavík to Dalland / Dalur. Already in 1978 horsebreeding and training began in Dalland / Dalur and many of the best and most successful trainers in Iceland have worked at the Horse Center of Dalur. Horses from the Dalland breeding and other horses which have been bought to the farm have been successful in competitions and breedingshows through the years both in Iceland and abroad. Today (2013) Halldór Guðjónsson is the manager and head trainer in Dalur. (See more about Halldór in the section called: The History of Dalur on this homepage).
