Jakob winner in gæðinga agility once again

Jakob Sigurðsson won the gæðinga agility in the Masters League which was held last night. He was riding the töt mare Árborg frá Miðey...

with a great deal of security and professionalism and won with a score of 7.88. In second place was Sigurbjörn Bárðarson riding the horse Jarl frá Mið-Fossum with a score of 7.60 and in third place was Bylgja Gauksdóttir riding Grýta frá Garðabæ with a score of 7.42.
 
Gæðinga agility is an extremely entertaining event where great requirements are made to both the horse and rider. Most of the horses which were presented this evening were experienced competition horses, although Árborg is relatively new amongst the best competition horses in the country. Still the fact remains that for the common person interested in horses it is difficult to detect between what is a good show and then what it is that makes a show great and this is probably because not many competitions are held in this particular event. It would be great it there were more competitions held in this event and also it would be fun if they offered gæðinga agility competitions for example at Icelandic tournaments.
 
This is the second time that Jakob wins the gæðinga agility at the Masters Laegue tournament, but last time he was riding the stallion Auður frá Lundum. It is considered a great achievement to win twice in this difficult event riding horses which are so totally different.
Sigurbjörn performed with great security at the show riding Jarli frá Mið-Fossum who has great presence and Bylgja Gauksdóttir who got passed many of the older and more experienced riders, leaving them behind. Clearly she is now amongst the foremost riders in the country, riding the mare Grýta frá Garðabæ who is a mare who has been bred by her family
