The aim of the breeding of the Icelandic horses is to get good and strong riding horses which can be used for riding tours in the wilderness and mountain areas.
The horses should not loose any of the original features and the climate in North Norway (Finnmark) gives an ideal situation to reach this goal.
In all breeding it is very important to select parents with wanted features. We are using high classified mares (Dirfska and Yrpa) and some of the best stallions available (Skorri frá Blönduósi, Galdur frá Sauðárkróki and Heljar frá Vatnsleysu).
In September 2007 one of our one-year-old mares (Skjøna) got the highest score of one-year-old mares in North Norway.
For getting strong and healthy horses we give them reasonable grasing areas all the year around and they are feeded with high quality hay, mainly outside. They are only kept inside after training and sweating during winter time and under extreem weather conditions (below -20°C or rainy weather around 0°C, for example).
Our grasing areas and hay gives enough energy to our horses, so vi give them only limited amount of concentrates with high content of minerals.
Our young horses are kept whole the time together with adult horses so they maintain their natural instincts and develope respect for the leader horse and human beings, but they trust humans since we handle them daily; so they are easy to handle. This is an important fundament for the later training.
Our intention is not to have many horses but produce high quality riding horses for sale.

 Marzipan Gold og Canis Borealis ("Charlie") kom i går til sitt nye hjem i Sverige. Vi har fått disse bildene med rapporten fra hans nye "mamma" at han har funnet seg til rette der; han spiser og leker og sover bra. Vi ønsker lykke til!

Marzipan er midlertidig hos oss / Marzipan is with us for a meanwhile

 Marzipan Gold of Canis Borealis er nå hos oss. Kjøperen er blitt alvorlig syk slik at hun ikke kunne ha ham lenger. Vi finner et nytt hjem til gutten, men frem til han flytter bor han hos oss. Marzipan ("Charlie") er 8 måneder gammel nå. Han kommer overens med våre hunder. Han er en veldig snill og god gutt.
