Viðar would like to see more tournaments include gæðinga agility

Viðar Ingólfsson and Tumi frá Stóra-Hofi won with excellence the gæðinga agility in the Masters League last year.....

 
“In the finals the presentation by Viðar and Tumi was just fantastic and spectators were totally captivated while the show was being performed and they ended the show with the Spanish step. The companions received a score of 7.87 and the first place” it says about the achievements of Viðar and Tumi at the Masters League website.  “I will bring the first prize winner stallion Röskur frá Sunnuhvoli, and the sire is Rökkvi frá Hárlaugsstöðum,” he says about the horse he will be riding tonight.
 
When asked whether the audience can expect any unexpected happenings from him tonight, he did not want to comment. “This time it will be a little more liberal” he said, in a quite mysterious manner.
 
The gæðinga agility is a great challenge for the rider where the interplay between man and hors is very important. The judges will be looking out for how many and how difficult the exercise are and how  successful the competing pair is, in what way the exercises are mixed together with the different gaits, versatility and strength of the gaits as well as the flow of the entire presentation. Riders need to rid at least three gaits and five agility exercises, but there is only one mandatory exercise, which is a shoulder in at tölt. The length of the show can be maximum 3.5 minutes.
 
Whn asked what is was that makes the gæðinga agility such an interesting competition event, Viðar says that it all depends on well trained horses. “The horses need to be extremely well prepared, well broken in and trained. This is a fantastic event which is a great challenge for both rider and horse and in fact I would like to see this event in more tournaments in the gæðinga agility” Viðar finally says.
Eiðfaxi wishes him all the best in the competition tonight.
