Recently we got a very exciting e-mail from Veronika Kremmer, who is the owner of Hrafnfaxi frá Hindisvík. 
Hrafnfaxi is bred by Tobbi who also started his first training. Hrafnfaxi was sold when he was 5 years old and is now 31 years and looking great. He is pure bred from Hindisvík, a son of Glóblesi frá Hindisvík and Brúnstjarna frá Hindsivík.
Hrafnfaxi was a successful stallion in Slovenia and Germany. Amongst his offsprings are for example the mare, Elskamin, who has been successful in speedpace. Another well known son of Hrafnfaxi is Hrafnar frá Hindisvík, who also was very successful in competitions. He was for example Icelandic Sport Champion in the youth class and was also in the youth class finals in Landsmót, with a score of 8,60.

Veronika says about Hrafnfaxi:
I bought him when he was 18 years old. He had been used as a stallion in Slovenia for many years. I took him with me to Germany and started to train him again. We took part in some competitions and brought home several ribbons. Hrafnfaxi was never sick in his life, except for an injury who occured after a bad fall.

"Hrafnfaxi is a very special horse. He sometimes skeptical but you can persuade him to do anything. Now in his older years the icelandic wildhorse often comes to daylight :) but he can easily be handled by any child. You can still see how great his gaits are. Not many young horses can trot like he does now when he is 31 years old!
Unfortunately we do not have any riding pictures because it was before the time of the smartphones."

It is always nice to get such good news from old friends and we want to thank Veronika specially for sending us the pictures and giving us permission to use them :)

Recently we were also contacted by the owner of Heljar frá Hindisvík, who is a full brother of Hrafnfaxi. You can read about that by clicking here.
