Extremely exciting results in four gaits ended with a duel between the Hrímnir team member, Artemisiua Bertus riding Óskar frá Blesastöðum 1A and Þorvaldur Árni Þorvaldsson riding Segull frá Flugumýri I in the Top Reiter/Ármót team.
Artemisia and Óskar were by far on the top after a magnificent presentation which was soft with great presentation in the slow tölt, receiving a score of 8.33. But as the finals drew near Þorvaldur and Segull came closer to the top seat and they were even when it came to the final event of the tournament, which was fast tölt. This is where Artemisia and Óskar on the other hand managed to win a sweet victory, receiving a final score of 7.70. Þorvaldur and Segull received the silver and Jakob Svavar Sigurðsson became the third riding Asi frá Lundum II.
Ólafur Ásgeirsson, Spónn.is team member was the winner in the B-finals in four gaits riding the son of Andvari Hugleikur frá Galtanesi. They received a final score of 7.47. The spectators seemed to agree with the judges and applauded when the finals were announced.
Team Top Reiter/ Ármót received the title Four gaits team of the Masters League 2012.
Who is Óskar?
Óskar frá Blesastöðum 1A received great attention in the summer of 2009 when he was presented at a breeding assessment and received a total score of 8.22 and 9.0 for tölt, trot, spirit/temperament and 9.5 for general presence and 9.5 for slow tölt and canter. Óskar is out of Törfi frá Kjartansstöðum and the daughter of Vákur, Dúfa frá Skeiðháholti and the mares coming from Vákur have been very successful as breeding mares. One enjoyable fact: Last year’s winner, Loki frá Selfossi is out of the daughter of Vákur, Surtlu frá Brúnastöðum. Loki and Sigurður Sigurðarson were in 6th place in the competition this time.
