The final night of the Skagfirska mótaröðin took place 12th of April. Pétur and Maiju participated in fivegate and they made it both to the finals. They competed on the brothers Hlekkur and Njörður from Saurbær. Both horses are taking their first steps in fivegate, so it was a pleasing result to see them both getting into the finals. Pétur and Hlekkur won the competition and Maiju and Njörður came fourth.
Pétur got a special prize for winning the tournament.
Pétur and Maiju participated yesterday in the first competition of the year in V5 and T7 and made a great start in 2017. Pétur won 1. class in tölt with the character 7,0 on Greip from Sauðárkrókur, which is a mare we own.
Pétur showed Hlekkur frá Saurbæ in a breeding show the other day and Hlekkur received a great score. Hlekkur improved both his conformation and ridden abilities. He reiceived 8,13 for conformation and 8,71 for ridden abilites. Hlekkur has a very even and good score, 9,0 for pace, form under rider and willingness and 8,5 for tölt, trot, gallop and slow tölt. Althoug this is a great score, this was not enough to make it to the top 10 in seven years and older stallions on Landsmót. Pétur decided to participate in A-flokkur gæðinga with Hlekkur, wich was just the day after the breeding show and they received 8,53 in their first competition ever and qualified for Landsmót. Exciting times ahead
