Vífill frá Glæsibæ
Vífill is a tall (14.1h) and handsome red dun gelding. He has a sensitive and intelligent character that we are enjoying getting to know. He has a lot of experience and was trained extensively by top trainer/rider Sigurbjörn (“Diddi”) Bárðarson.
Vífill is a son of the famous first prize four gated stallion, Parker frá Sólheimum. His grandsires on both sides - Hervar frá Sauðárkróki and Ófeigur frá Flugumýri - are two of the most famous honor prize stallions. All these fine genetics have come together to make Vífill a great riding horse.
Vífill is big and strong and posesses a great amount of energy and stamina. He loves to move out (especially at his effortless tolt) and feels like he can go on forever. Though he is forward-thinking, he is also very responsive to the rider and solid out on the trails. He has four quality gaits including a brisk ground-covering walk, a jumped canter, and clear trot. But his best gait is probably his super tolt. He is a tolting machine with a very clear beat and super smooth ride. It's hard not to smile when you ride him!
We look forward to continuing to get to know him.
