Valkyrja is a very large (14.2h) and beautiful five gaited first prize pinto mare. She is the total package - excellent character, beautiful conformation, althetic talents, and pretty color. She has not only been evaluated first prize, but also been successful in Tolt competitions in Iceland. We are so excited to have this fabulous mare join the Sand Meadow family!

Valkyrja has excellent bloodlines with proven genetics. Her sire, Álfur, is a highly evaluated first prize stallion with a 9.5 for tolt that has received the honor prize for the quality of his offspring. Álfur is now in Norway, so the offspring he had while still in Iceland are highly sought after. Álfur comes from probably two of the most famous horses in Icelandic horse breeding, the great honor prize stallion Orri frá Þúfu í Landeyjum (8.34) and the honor prize mare, ÁlfadÍs frá Selfossi (8.31). Valkyrja's dam Vaka frá Þúfu is a daughter of Mjölnir frá Sandhólaferju (8.16) - a first prize stallion with a perfect 10 for tolt.

Though quite talented Valkyrja has a gentle temperment that allows her to be ridden by almost anyone. She is polite, friendly, and sweet - exactly the character we look for in our riding and breeding horses. We look forward to many years with her part of the Sand Meadow herd.

And since we had to jump at the chance to bring Valkyrja home from Iceland in foal, we are thrilled to announce she is confirmed pregnant to the amazing stallion Viðar frá Skör!

Viðar is evaluated first prize with an outstanding total score of 8.89 which includes 9.5 for proportions and trot and 9.0 for back and croup, joints, tolt, gallop, ridability, general impression, and walk. He also has an amazing character. His sire is the honor prize stallion Hrannar frá Flugumýri II (8.85) and his dam is the first prize mare Vár frá Auðsholtshjáleigu (8.36). We are very excited to meet this special foal in 2022!
