Galdur fra Hotsmula
Lipurta was here for a couple of weeks training for her owner, she had extreme movements and gaits, here are some photo’s of her from while she was here:
Hilda was sold to Germany, she was a lovely 9 year old, nicely proportioned five gaited mare, that carried her rider well. Bags of tolt, but also ground gaits as well as a good pace! She was quite willing and nicely sensitive to the leg, brave and could tolt all day!

Andvari is a 6 year old 4 gaited gelding, who was started here and sold on once he was ready. He has great breeding and gaits and will make a good riding and competition horse. He was a lovely horse to have here.
Reykur is a 6 year old five gaited gelding who was here for a few weeks for training after his initial start. He is a brave horse who was learning to be ridden more alone in the school and oval track or outside in company and to ‘see a bit more of the world’.
Brjann is a 4/5 gaited gelding bred in Iceland. He was here for about 3 months in late 2014-early 2015 while his owner recovered from an operation. He has very good gaits and was an extremely nice character to have around the farm. While he was here, we worked on all gaits and his softness in the body. He recently came back for a short while and it was lovely to have him here again! NB Brjann is now back with us again!
Audur came here for some starter training as a 4/5 year old. He is a four gaited stallion with first prize for conformation. He was a pleasure to train and easy and confidence-giving to ride. While he was here, he also learnt lateral movements, form and the start of tolt training. His owner now competes him in dressage! NB Audur passed away this year from an injury, a very sad time.
Edall is a 12 year old four gaited gelding who came for a bit of training/exercise! He was very much fun to ride, lots of energy with good gaits, and a proud expression.
Thor came to Connegar Farm to be looked after for his owner for a while – he is a four gaited gelding who was fun to ride. We worked on his form, softness and tolt and he even did some jumping while he was here! His owner is now enjoying hacking on him.
Sveipur is a four gaited gelding with much tolt. He has been here a couple of times for training and is fun to ride. While he was here we worked on all gaits, softness, form, speed control and speed in tolt. His owner rides him competitively in the UK.
Jasmin is a five gaited mare who came here for a second part of training after a break of being started a little. She was an uncomplicated horse and was fun to ride out. She then returned for a little more training before being sold to her current owner who enjoys hacking her and taking her to courses.
Baltasar (Mr B)
Baltasar is a four gaited gelding who came here for some training after being started by his breeder. While he was here he learnt to have form, and started tolt training. He has good ground gaits with lots of movement. He has since been sold to his current owner who enjoys hacking him and coming for lessons to learn more! His owner says “Jemimah is a lovely person, a great teacher and an intelligent horse trainer. It’s a joy being in a lesson, choosing a horse with her or just hanging out at her yard.”
