Hindisvík is located on the end of Vatnsnes, north of Hvammstangi in north-west Iceland. Reverend Séra Sigurður Norland in Hindisvík was the brother of Tobbis grandfather.
We are living in Sæból, which has a big eider colony and is located next to Hvammstangi.
Tobbi has been breeding, training, shooing and breaking in horses for his whole life. He also has a lot of experience with horse trips and was a judge in horse-sports competition and riding teacher for many years. Together with his father, Agnar Norland, he bred the famous Hindisvík bloodline for many years. They also built the horse center and riding arena "Hindisvík" in Mosfellsbær, Reykjavík, which was one of the first in Iceland.
