Hanný has a strong connection to the old Hornafjörður bloodline. She started to work as a horse trainer in Hornafjörður in 1987 and was a trainer there for 26 years, till 2013. Back then there was still a lot of horses from the old bloodline, so she got to know the bloodline very well and has been wanting horses like that ever since.

Horses from the old Hornafjörður-Breed are usually very friendly towards people and calm in the herd, but have big personalities and are independent characters. They are usually easy to break in if you handle them right and give them the time in the beginning of their training. Their forward willingness usually grows with their training and there is a quote that describes it pretty well. It was said about the stallion Blakkur frá Árnanesi “skap og fjör svo mikið, að ekki væri þörf á meiru fyrir kröfuharðan hestamann.”

Roughly translated: "so much willingness that even a demanding rider could not ask for more."

The tölt is usually the best of the gaits. They are also known for their almost supernatural endurance and speed range in their gaits.

Þorkell Bjarnason, former "horse-breeding-minister" of iceland, describes it very well in his quote:

“Enginn maður heldur út að ferðast svo lengi, án hvíldar, að hann nálgist það að vera til frásagnar þegar viljinn fjarar út í hornfirskum viljahesti.” (Jódynur 1990)

Roughly translated:"no man has the endurance to travel (riding) for so long, without resting, that he will experience the willingness fade in a Hornafjörður powerhorse"

We have been breeding Hornafjörður-horses for many years. We know the horses well and like their qualities.

It is also our belief that it will be good to have access to this bloodline later because the horses in Iceland are getting more and more related.

The main ancestors of our Hornafjörður breeding are; Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri, Flosi frá Brunnum and Gustur frá Grund.
