Breeding Goals

Our primary breeding goal is to achieve in our horses the main features and characteristics of an Icelandic “gæðingur”: a truly great riding horse.

We emphasize:

  •     Clean and fluid gaits
  •     Supple and stylish movements
  •     Willingness
  •     Noble head carriage
  •     High foot lift on both the fore and hind legs
  •     Confidence

The horse's physical form must be well-proportioned and pleasing to the eye, impressive under the rider and allowing unimpeded movement. Its conformation must support a majestic bearing and fluid and pleasing motion. The legs must be sturdy and the the mane and tail abubdant and of above-average rating.

In our view, most of the colors natural to Icelandic horses are attractive and worthy.
