Lögg frá Laufhóli
US2006204678 - IS2006258429
Lögg is a very large (14h), pretty five-gaited chestnut pinto mare. With her large size and substance, color, and confidence she is a mare that really stands out from the crowd. If you want to turn heads while you tolt down the trail she may be for you!
Lögg is very fun and smooth riding horse. She loves to head out on the trails and is extremely brave and independent. Out on the trail she will plow through the toughest terrain with ease. She has five strong gaits, including a very natural and smooth tolt that is her first choice of gait. Her movements are wide and she covers a lot of ground. She also has a great energy level. She is always willing to go, but just as easy to stop. We ride her in a bitless sidepull, but she also goes well in a simple snaffle bit. She is happy to go in any position in a group - or out alone. Her size, good bone, and correct structure make her a very good weight carrier and she has a tremendous amount of endurance out on the trail. You will probably tire out long before she does! Lögg has been used for lessons for riders of all levels (including children) and has also particpated in clinics. However, she really enjoys riding out best and her ideal partner would be an advanced beginner or intermediate rider that wants to hit the trails with a big and beautiful easy-tolting smooth mare.
Though her pedigree is nothing special except for her grandsire Sleipnir frá Laufhóli, who is a evaluated first prize stallion with a 9.0 for tolt and a successful competition horse both in Tolt and Four Gait, Lögg seems to have the excellent genetic strength for breeding. She has four offspring all four had significant positive attributes: they were good looking with strong legs, had great characters, had lots of natural tolt with good movements, and were pretty pintos. So Lögg could be easily used for breeding as well as riding.
In May of 2014 when she had just started her training we had Lögg formally evaluated for conformation. We were not at all surprised that this beautiful and well-built mare scored over the first prize mark. Lögg is not only conformationally correct, but she has a lot of size and real substance - something that can be lacking in more finer built "modern" horses.
