  • Gulkolla

    Kolla frá Punktur wild chamomile

    F: Vignir frá Punktur

    M: Strákja frá Punktur

    Confident four-gaited mare of medium size

    Gulkolla is a genuine daughter of her both parents, we find something of her father and mother in everything we see from her, character, exterior, gaits… She knows what she wants is not easily frightened. That makes her nice to work with. On the other side she is very independent and confident, so if the rider isn’t sure enough, she takes the lead. With her, it’s very important to be sure of what you want and to communicate clearly, than she trust the rider and will go through fire for him/her.

    Gulkolla has the combination of the comfortable and pure tölt of Strákja and the preference to trot of Vignir. We train her to tölt for short distances, so it’s always fun for her and she tölts better and better because such a nice tölt, we want to keep and even improve. Happily, she also has a great trot, sometimes even so good, that you barely feel the difference wih tölt.

    Gulkolla is a strongly built isabel mare. In the herd, she is not very high in position, but she takes good care of herself and always has a good place at the food.

  • Pipar

    Heillpípar frá Punktur whole pepper

     

    F: Sótstör frá Punktur

    M: Alma frá Punktur

    Delightful horse with temperament and smooth, spacious gaits

    Pípar is a pretty black mare with beautiful gaits. She is a five-gaited horse without a preference for one gait. All her gaits are spacious, comfortable and smooth. Of course we didn’t start the pace with her, she is still too young, but she has the capacity and the temper for it.

    If Pípar can decide for herself, she likes to change gait frequently, but as rider you can easily ride all the gaits apart from each other and all are clear. She takes long steps in tölt and trot. That’s why she can go fast while the rider doesn’t feel it, it just feels very smooth.

    As a young horse, it was a challenge to train Pípar, she showed that she was smart and had a lot of energy. She liked to make jokes with us. This was obviously the behaviour of a young horse finding out who she is and never scary. It really felt like a joke, it took only a moment and then she continued with what the trainer was asking.

    In the meantime Pípar grew older, calmer and much more reliable, but she is still a horse who goes best together with an advanced rider. She is kind, well behaved and calm, but she likes a challenge in training and if she doesn’t get that, she will make one herself.

    In short: Pípar is a fantastic and trustable mare for an experienced rider, who’s looking for a horse to do a lot, some speed from time to time, some challenging exercises and maybe even some competition, she has the talent for that too.

  • Grænir

    Grænir frá Punktur pine

    F: Leikur frá Efri-Þverá

    M: Kornrós frá Punktur

    Big, cool gelding with a golden character.

    Grænir is a big, strong and soft hearted gelding. He is friendly to people, is always looking for contact and adores attention and hugs. Hij likes to do thinks together! Cuddling, brushing, groundwork, walking, riding… He loves everything as long as he gets a lot of attention. He is a real teamplayer and very motivated. He always needs to think deeply about new stuff, but then he starts to understand and in the end, you can see him being proud because he learned something new.

    Græir is now lightly ridden in and the training was a lot of fun! He feels very strong and stable for a young horse and he has nice gaits, easy and spacious. Tölt is not difficult for him, but he needs some support to keep going tölt. Of course, we concentrate a lot on the tölt in our training, but Grænir shoed already that he has a wonderful trot too.

    Grænir is a grey horse and he is still quite dark, so in the next years, his colour will change untill he is really white.

    The next step in his training is to go more often to the forest and explore new routes. We are already convinced that Grænir will like that because he is very curious and loves to discover new things.

    Grænir will be an amazig Icelandic horse to ride a lot outside, strong, happy, trustable and alwys in for some fun!

  • Gryta

    Gryta frá Punktur bronkruid

    Father: Sótstör frá Punktur

    Mother: Vallasúra frá Punktur

    Calm, black mare with an expressive face

    Gryta is a four-gated mare that learns quickly and is cooperating. She likes to do what you ask, as long as she understands and is able to do it. If you are sitting good, she tölts easily, but if you don’t sit deep enough, she changes to trot.

    When we started to ride her on the road, she wasn’t an outstanding horse. She was kind and well behaving, but not striking. This changed entirely when we started to go to the forest with her. She really likes to ride in a new environment and shows that she enjoys the rides.

    Gryta is still young and has not so much experience yet, so you can feel that some things are strange to her. She is not scary at all and won’t take off, but you can feel stress in her body. In such situations, she needs some time to look and to think. Then she mostly concludes that there is nothing to be scared of and she goes on.

    Gryta is a lovely, affectionate mare who often comes to say hello and she shows that she likes to work with you. We are sure that she will be a great recreational horse, but at the moment she still needs some support to explore new situations, so she learns that new things are rarely scary.

  • Klukka

    Hrafnklukka frá Punktur bellflower

    Father: Sótstör frá Punktur

    Mother: Angilja frá Punktur

    Elegantly built, promising black mare

    Klukka is a late maturing, five-gated mare. She got some extra time to grow and now she shows that this time was very useful. As a foal and a young horse, she was always a little meagre, especially the winters took a lot of her energy, but this winter she changed totally and she grew a lot, in height and in width. To our estimate, she grew almost 10cm and now she looks like a real horse in stead of a lanky foal. She also became a lot stronger, but she still has to get used to her bigger body and find back her balance. This winter, Klukka was in the herd with the foals to lead them and especially at the end of the winter, she developed as a real playful horse. We often saw her galloping through the meadow with a group of foals behind her.

    With groundwork, it was very clear that before any training, Klukka first needed to find back her balance because trotting in a circle turned out to be very difficult. Every session it got better and better and finally she can trot in 2 tempi on a circle. Now we slowly start to ride her. Very calm, short sessions, some steps of tölt and still some groundwork in between, to not overcharge her. This goes pretty well, she is very sensitive with riding, so we have to be careful with the signs we give her, but apart from that, Klukka does a great job and tölt is very easy to find.

    With the current progression, Klukka will be a very nice riding horse with spacious, easy to ride gates, who needs only light signs from the rider.
