About Us


Hilmar Þór Sigurjónsson

My name is Hilmar Þór Sigurjónsson and I was born on the 5th of February 1985. I was raised in Öræfasveit and have lived here for most of my life. Both of my parents are from here and I come from a family that has lived here for more than 200 years! My parents are farmers and at a young age I started having much interest in the horses at the farm. I started young to ride horses and now I have dedicated a large part of my life to the Icelandic horse. I studied equistry for three years at Hólar University in north Iceland where I learned riding instruction and learned about breeding and training of the Icelandic horse.
