Horses have been bred at Friðheimar since 1995, and the stud now has four prize brood mares. Seven horses have been shown at breeding evaluations, of which three received first prize – an overall score of 8.0 or higher. The stud is now raising some very promising colts – and our mares are only bred with prize-winning stallions.
Horse breeding is a long-term business, but now each year two or three promising youngsters are ready to start training. Friðheimar owns a total of about forty horses.
Ever since we started breeding horses at Friðheimar in 1995, our aim has been to breed willing, good-looking individuals with good neck and shoulders and a good disposition. We place a lot of emphasis on good tölt, high graceful leg action and style, preferably five-gaiters, or good riding horses with extended gaits and speed.
Stallions from various bloodlines are bred with the mares, and we make sure to select an outstanding stud to cover each mare. Friðheimar is part-owner of Töfri frá Kjartansstöðum, a stallion which displays an outstanding tölt.
