Black, no white markings (Brúnn)
Sire: IS1991157345 - Hugi frá Hafsteinsstöðum
Dam: IS2000225599 - Tíbrá frá Hafnarfirði
An incredibly mature and kind stallion who enjoys learning all the time.
Taktur did very well at the 2015 British Championships, taking everything in his stride. This was his first time out and the Icelandic judges remarked on his future potential.
This 4 gaited stallion has big movements and an exceptional temperament.

Newly imported from Norway, though originally from Iceland, this mare has been running with, and confirmed pregnant, Álfur frá Selfossi (IS2002187662).
With huge, but careful anticipation, we look forward to her foal this May.

Chestnut gelding with a blaze (Rauðblesótt)
Sire: IS2009180242 -Taktur frá Velli II
Dam: IS2002287901 - Hetja frá Skeiðháholti
To date, we have seen some lovely gaits with good flowing movement. Hjalti is a powerful yearling gelding. He is strong and well built and very similar to his mother and a fantastic temperament. Easy to work with and a quick learner.
This is our first home-bred Icelandic foal in Shetland - we are naturally very proud of him.
Efstur from Thordale
Chestnut gelding with a star
Sire: IS2002187662 - Álfur frá Selfossi
Dam: IS2002287901 - Brá frá Reykjavík
This five gaited colt has huge potential. He has the wow factor. Already showing natural tölt while beautifully balanced. Lovely clever temperament with willingness.
Tölt - a natural 4-beat gait, ridden at any speed, with the same footfalls as walk, resulting in a smooth, comfortable yet powerful ride.
Pace (skeið ) - a lateral gait used for speed & racing, giving a feeling of flying (flugskeið) when all four legs are off the ground.
The Icelandic Horse is known for its genetic purity. There have been no imported horses to Icelandic since 982AD.
Genetic analysis shows links between Mongolian, Fjord, Exmoor, Scottish Highland, Shetland & Connemara breeds.
