  • Menta

    Píparmenta frá Punktur (peppermint)

    Father: Vignir frá Punktur

    Mother: Fra Elly van de Grolhorst

    Lovely, cooperative chestnut mare

    You wouldn’t notice Menta in the group, until you want to do something with her. Than she becomes a studious, motivated and enthusiastic horse. She thinks with you during training sessions and learns very quickly. This makes her a great horse to work with.

    Menta is a four-gaited mare, but tölt is difficult for her. She works on it with a lot of enthousiasm and you can feel how much effort she puts into it. At the moment she can do a clean tölt at walking pace. Trot is more easy for her and she enjoys to make some tempo in trot.

    Now we are teaching her to use her body in a proper way because she keeps her head very high. She picks it up quickly, in dubbellonging as well as in riding, but it is important to keep paying attention to it.

    Menta needs an experienced rider who likes to teach her more dressage and meanwhile enjoys a smart, lovely and always motivated horse with a lot of talent.

  • Laekja

    Giljaflaekja frá Punktur (marigold)

    Father: Vignir frá Punktur

    Mother: Olafssura frá Punktur

    Perfect horse for recreation, easy tölt and very kind

    Laekja is a calm and social horse. Although she is still young and has only little experience, we can already feel that she will be a great horse for recreation. She doesn’t have much experience yet, we are starting to ride with her in the forest at the moment, but she learns very quickly and feels already bomproof. Besides her great character, she also developed a nice and easy tölt from the start of her training.

    In the herd, Laekja is a very social horse, often we see her grooming with other horses and she also loves to be groomed by people.

    Laekja was an easy horse from the beginning of her training. It’s a pleasure to work with her, she took every new lesson very easy and learned quickly. When we started to ride her, it felt like she did it already. From the first steps under the saddle, she tölted, easy and steady. She is very cool in her head and doesn’t pay much attention to what’s around her. In fact, everything goes so naturally with her, that we can’t say much about it. In other words, we expect her to become an amazing horse, lovely, kind, easy with an great tölt.

  • Lufa

    Lúfa frá Punktur (laburnum / Golden Rain)

    F: Vignir frá Punktur

    M: Eina frá Punktur

    Elegantly built, social mare with a very light palomino colour

    Lúfa is a young, friendly mare. She is very social to people as well as to other horses. She is a four-gaited horse, and she shows some tölt under the saddle. It is difficult for her and she needs more training and an experienced rider to improve. Her trot under the saddle is spacious and easy.

    Lúfa is sensible and very light to ridem, but she is not spooky. She might be a little ill at ease in new situations because she doesn’t have much experience yet.

    We started to ride her and she did it great, but she doesn’t yet know all the basic things.

    In the herd, Lúfa has a low position, but is great to see that she takes care of the other horses low in position. When they have to change from meadow, we often see her looking backward and slowing down to check if everyone is following.

    Lúfa is a very nice, young mare to develop into a kind and reliable recreation horse.

  • Fifa

    Raudfífa frá Punktur

    F: Litli-Skjoni frá Hofi

    M: Flugahnodri frá Punktur

    Small pinto mare with a very sweet character and funny painting

    Although her name reminds you of something else than the horseworld, Fifa proofs that she is a great horse when you ride her. She is a five-gaited mare with a lot of lateral tendency, but that doesn’t affect her other gaites. A relaxed and active attitude of the rider gain a fantastic, steady tölt. Trot and galop are also promising, but not yet steady because for us, tölt is more important in training. We don’t expect pace from her because she is too sweet and calm.

    In training, she is very easy, accept new riders easily and loves to do things with us.

    Fifa is chestnut-pinto With a very funny painting and many lovers of Icelandic horses fall instantly in love with her head. Apart from riding, Fifa also likes to stand close to us and she really enjoys good brushing or a hug.

    Fifa is a lovely, sweet Icelandic mare with a lot of potential.

  • Ynga

    Yngvildur frá Friðarstöðum (Ynga)

    F: Vídalín-Heiður van de Kwinne

    M: Sólrún frá Friðarstöðum

    Cool, dark chestnut mare that likes to work

    Ynga came in April from Holland to Poland. She easily found her place in our herd and in May we started her training. It’s a pleasure for horse and rider because she likes to work. It also very good for her because she still needs to lose some weight, so every kilometer helps. Her tölt becomes more and more steady and walk, trot and galop are easy to ride. Ynga also turned out to be a perfect exemple of a bomproof and cool Icelandic mare: in front, alone or at the back of a group, it doesn’t make any difference for her.

    Groundwork is also a pleasure with her, she is concentrated and likes to do what you ask her.

    Ynga is ridden in rather late and sometimes you can still feel that she has less experience than other horses of her age. But now she is getting more experience and every time she is more easy and less impressed by things around her.

    In short, she is the perfect horse to make relaxed rides to the forest.

  • 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.

  • Greni

    Rauthgreni frá Punktur red willow

    Father: Vignir frá Punktur

    Mother: Alfadis frá Lotus

    Really red, sporty built chestnut with long, full manes

    In the herd, Greni immediately catches the eyes of everyone. On one hand because he still pesents himself as a stallion, on the other hand because of his attitude and his looks. He is a beautiful red chestnut with long manes and a proud posture. He is elegant, but yet very firmly built.

    With ground work he likes to know what kind of human he has with him. He tries you out and sees if he can decide what he wants to do, but when he concludes that you are worth working for, he is easy and kind. He needs some challenges though because otherwise he is bored very soon and he switches his concentration to everything around him.

    We slightly started to ride him and from the beginning on, he is very easy and well behaving. Under the saddle he has a good work attitude and is concentrated on the rider. He isn’t distracted quickly and is a real, cool Icelandic horse. He will not be impressed of something easily. Greni is truely four-gaited. Tölt is still rather difficult for him, but slow speed goes well. He still needs a lot of support, but you can feel he does the best he can. Bit by bit it goes faster, but it is balancing the whole time because when he goes too fast, he falls in trot.

    We used Greni as a stallion for two years and we have some nice foals from him, but we decided not to let him cover another year because he has a lot of relatives in the herd.

    That is the reason Greni is now for sale, he is looking for an owner who wants to improve his tölt and likes to have a cool horse for challenging rides.

    Greni is castrated on the 28th of May and can move from the 23rd of July.
