The weather was not good for the guest of Landsmót in the A-finals in B-class gæðingar which just completed. It started raining just before the finals but still did not affect riders and horses, because the competition between the strongest four gaited horses was extremely exciting all the way until the final core for everyone had been declared.
The horses were different in the slow tölt, some strong and others less. The experienced horse and rider, Sveigur frá Varmadal and Hulda Gústafsdóttir seemed quite calm and received the highest score amongst competitors a score of 8,80. Hrímnir frá Ósi was beautiful under the control of Guðmundur Björgvinsson and received a score of 8,78.
Then it was the trot. In that event it was the charmer Glóðafeyki frá Halakoti and Einar Öder Magnússon who were the winner, receiving the fantastic score of 9,12 and both Hrímnir, Loki frá Selfossi and Eldjárn frá Tjaldhólum all received high scores.
Glóðafeykir and Einar had supremacy in their powerful presentation amongst competitors in speed tölt, and received a score of 9,18. The same could be said about their scores for spirit and general presence, and Glóðafeykir charmed the judges, receiving a score of 9,16 for spirit and 8,92 for general presence. The victory of the old fox and the charming Glóðafeykis was therefore ensured when they received an even final score of 9,00 and Einar received the deserved Háfeti trophy.
Glóðafeykir and Einar also stole the scene in this class last year, when the ended in third place after having won the B-finals. At an interview with the announcer of the tournament he said that this was all due to this fantastic horse. Einar himself has not won Landsmót since 1986, so this was a quite sweet victory for him.
Rumor says that Einar plans to take Glóðafeykir with him to Berlin at the WC in 2013.
