Hinni and Hulda run with their family’s farm, Árbakki wich is located in south Iceland, with endless fields and excellent view over Hekla volcano. We have been working together with horses since 1987 and we offer wide selection of services; breeding, horse export, horse sale, consulting and riding clinics at home and abroad. Hundreds of horses are exported from Iceland to all over the world by Hestvit – Árbakki each year.
Hestvit take care of all process regarding horse export; from picking up the horse on location, doing all the paper work and flight arrangements etc. Training competition horses is a big part of the daily life here at the farm as well doing business with Icelandic horses. We have been extremely successful on the competition tracks here in Iceland and elsewhere in Europe. We have are proud to say that we have been a part of the Icelandic national team multiple times. When not competing or making arrangements for export horses we provide riding lesson and clinics in Iceland and abroad. Between 1997-2000 we lived and worked with horses in Germany but moved back to Iceland in the year 2000.
We have been living and working at our farm Árbakki in the south of Iceland since 2005.
