Couple battle at the top

Last weekend we took part in a sport competition at Hörður, club, in Mosfellsbær. Siggi was riding Helgi frá Neðri-Hrepp and Gormur frá Efri-Þverá and Edda Rún was riding Safír frá Neðri-Þverá.

After preliminary round Siggi and Helgi were in first place with 7,20, Edda Rún and Safír in third place with 6,73 and Siggi and Gormur in fourth to fifth place with 6,60. Siggi decided to ride Gormur in the finals and of course Edda Rún took Safír. There was a strong competition in the finals and Siggi and Gormur won with 6,98 and Edda Rún and Safír became second with 6,86 so it was a narrow margin between us.

Safír and Gormur are bred by father and son, Halldór Svansson and Sigurður Halldórsson. They are both born in 2006. Safír is after Gígjar frá Auðsholtshjáleigu and Hrafndís frá Efri-Þverá and Gormur is after Blær frá Torfunesi and Rauðkolla frá Litla-Moshvoli. We own Gormur but our dear friend Ólafur Guðni Sigurðsson owns Safír with us. Promising fivegaiters we have there and it is not bad to start the summer with them in our stable.

Sometimes when both mom and dad need to be in the competition ring at the same moment it is good to have good family and friends and we sure do. The sisters and Edda Rún´s cousins, Jóna Dís and Guðrún Edda, took Helga Rún under their wings while we were in the finals in fivegait and they seem to have had good time together :) | Siggi Matt & Edda Rún | Vesturási 24 | 110 Reykjavík | Sími: 777 8002 & 897 1713 |
