Here below is a overview, from the spring, and summer, of events and shows Kjartansstaðir participated in,
Our goal was mainly to do a well as possible training, and getting the horses ready, getting into practice again.
But in the end we did well, five horses from our breeding received 1 prize, and two 4 year old mares
, promising 2 prize scores, they will be seen next year!
In the same week, there is a breeding show at Miðfossar, in the west part of Iceland, to that show we transported
Three young mares, Unun five years old, and two, at the age of four; Rebekka and Náttfríður.
Unun reseived 1 prize, highest score, of that show, 8,32 ! next highest score of a five year old mare to the Landsmót”
The two four year old mares, second prize, Rebekka 7,93 and a ticket to Landsmót, Náttfríður was not ready enough,
Her time will come! Very promising mare.

Then we come to Selfoss again, this time bringing our sixteen year old, Töfri, been in training at Kjartansstaðir, for most Part of the winter,
Viðar Ingólfsson rides him in T1, and gets a ticket to the Landsmót.
At the Landsmót, Töfri makes a big mistake, in the primary’s, and is out of finals.
Dimmblá betters her score, getting 9,0 for tölt, and ends in 6 place.
Unun did not as well as in the spring, ends, 9 place.
Rebekka we felt did good, well enough to get many offers, from fans wanting to own her!

Kjartansstaðir also had a breeding show, We were very mistrustful that is was a good idea,
But being urged by many of our friends, we took on the challenge, despite having no horses, with any experience, the group very young, four-five and six year old horses, except Töfri!
Many thanks for the great showmanship
To the riders how contributed, and helped us
