Odlingur fra Iliffs Icelandic Horses
Owner: Wild Rose Icelandic Horse Farm
"Oddi" is a bay 7 year old 5 gaited gelding. He has been started and trained by a professional trainer for one and a half years. He has crystal clear gaits. He is light on the bit and all he wants to do is please you. He does all of his gaits on command. (even pace) He is also talented enough to be a competition horse in Tolt or Fivegait. He has basic dressage training(leg yeilds, turn on haunches, turn on forhand, shoulder in/out, etc) plus he does a few extra tricks like shaking hands, playing tag and giving kisses. He is a people horse and loves attention. He knows his name and comes running when you call him. He also knows how to poney, train others to poney and to run beside the quad. He has been ridden on roads with semis and traffic and has been ridden in the mountains. He also has experiance with dirt bikes, joggers, dogs, bicycles and farm machinery. So far not much fazes him! He is perfect for intermediate rider.

Svalur fra Fitjamyri
Owner: Fitjamyri Icelandic Horse Farm
Svalur is a black 7 year old gelding. He is a wonderful riding horse with smooth gaits and natural tolt. He has a feather light mouth and knows leg yielding and bending through the body. He is easy to catch and easy to work around. He has a lovely teddy bear personality, is easy going with out being lazy and takes care of his rider. He is great in all kinds of traffic and is not a spooky horse. He stops on a dime as soon as you give the word. He is currently barefoot trimmed. He would be great for kids, riders that need a reliable horse, beginner riders or intermediate riders that just want a nice uncomplicated riding horse. He loves people and is more of a low man on the totem pole in the herd. We have yet to measure his height but he is approximately 12.3 or 13hh. He is strongly made and has no problems carrying 140lbs. He would also make a great lesson horse as he is very patient. Danielle has put a month and a half of training on him and will continue training him until he is sold.
