Our trainer and judge will be Silke Kohler from Germany, here is some more information about Silke:

My name is Silke Köhler. I am 51 years old and live south from Hamburg. I own an Icelandic-Horse-farm, Islandgestüt Bockholts-Hoff. I am A-Trainer since 2006 and national A-judge since 1992. At my farm live around 300 Icelandic-Horses. Breeding mares, stallions, sales horses, riding school horses, young horses. I am teaching and coaching many students. Some of them are hobby riders but most are competition riders. I am member of the Hannover/Bremen-Sportskader with four of my stallions. My specialities are pace and dressage. I like to train my horses as my friends so they love to work for me. And this is how l teach at our farm we train all kinds of Icelandic-Horses, from breaking in young ones over sales horses, hobby horses and sports horses for their owners and young stallions for breeding shows. We sell over 100 horses per year, from my own breeding, imported from Iceland and from people who want their horses to be sold. We are breeding around 30 foals every year and grow them up. And last but not least we have some apartments to rent for days or week for our tourists and guests who like to take lessons and go outriding in our beautiful nature.

British Championships 2021

It’s been a week since we went to Aston Le Walls for the 2021 British Championships and Summer Festival. Mike did extremely well with Kafteinn winning all his events. Jemimah took Alfadis on her first competition and she was brilliant! Here are some photos from the event:

IHSGB Summer Festival, Aston le Walls

We took 5 horses with us to compete at the IHSGB Summer Festival at Aston le Walls. Considering the surreal situation we currently find ourselves in with Covid-19, it was a very enjoyable event. We were very proud of our horses who did some of their best performances! We’d also like to congratulate the students, and horse owners we have sold horses to, who took part and did themselves proud. Here are some photos from the weekend.
