Horseexportnews in spring 2017

As all other news, we have been too busy using facebook to be writing here.  But here the latest news.

Hestvit was in the year of 2016 the biggest exporting company in Iceland.  We are proud of that, but mainly we are proud to tell that our customers seem to be coming back and mouth to mouth advertisement bringing us new customers.  We try to keep up the good work, our goal is to answer every mail quickly and solve every problem we get.  

In the spring of 2017 we have planes going to Liege in Belgium almost every week.

Recently there was a plane to Norrköping, Sweden, next probably in late summer, August or September

Next Billund flight will probably take place in late summer also. 

Horses for Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark that urgently are needed can be transported to Belgium and trucked up to these countries.

We have now several bookings for New York and hope for a plane there within few weeks.

For booking write us in the contact form or mail to us on: hestvit@hestvit.is

Looking forward to hearing from you!  

Time to write something on our homepage!

As Facebook seems to be the main tool people are using today, we have neglected our homepage.  I will now try to improve this and put in new things the next week.  The spring will soon be here in Iceland and there are many exciting things going on here.  

Hestvit being the biggest exporting company in 2016 and starting 2017 with the same power.  Hulda being the sportrider of they year 2016, Gústaf winning Landsmót in 2016 and many other exciting things.

Flans

Flans

Hulda and Gústaf had good weekend last weekend in Keflavík at a competition. 3 horses, 3 diciplins, 3 first places! Gústaf won fivegait junior class with Geisli frá Svanavatni with a final score of 6,83, Hulda won the five gait with the beuatiful Þrenna frá Hofi with 6,98 and the tölt with Flans frá Víðivöllum fremri with 7,61. Very promising start into a new season! The pictures are not taken there but at least there is something to see. Þrenna is for sale but now when she is doing so well I am not so sure on selling her!

Fyrsta folald ársins 2014

As often before, it is Þota frá Árbæ (Total score 8.30) that brought the first foal of 2014.  A long legged stallion, bay with a star!  Just beuatiful and moves great too!  A very exciting combination!

Snilld frá Selfossi til sölu – SOLD

Snilld is a beautiful fivegaited mare, chestnut with a star and a lot of mane.  She has good movements and has a great pedigree that tells us that she has the possibilities to be a interesting breeding mare. F: Asi frá Kálfholti, FF: Feykir 962, Hafsteinsstöðum, Stjarna frá Kálfholti.  A big part here is the famous Kolkuósi line.

Gordon frá Árbakka – New video and pics

Video


Gordon is born 2009, a big, approx 1,45 cm and very handsome (still) a stallion.  Dark chestnut with a lot of mane, this horse is really something to notice.

He is only ridden for about 7 months.  .  He has good and even gaits, trots with a good suspension and walk, as with so many Aron offsprings is just great.  Tölt is far from fully trained but is not hard to train and he is light in the hand and very cooperative.  Gordon is a material for a competition horse in fourgait or even fivegait  and tölt and since his charakter is so stable, he also makes a great riding horse for anybody.

FF: Óður frá Brún, honorary price

M: Gríma frá Árbakka (fourgaiter with 7,92, there of 8,5 for tölt, trot and willingness)
