Arnar Bjarki Sigurðarson has a BS.c in riding instruction from Hólar University (FIEF trainer 3) and is an international breeding judge for Icelandic horses. Arnar is the head trainer at his family farm Sunnuhvoll and teaches riding courses in the local high school FSu as well as doing clinics 2-3 weekends in every month, at home and abroad.

Árný Oddbjörg Oddsdóttir has finished first year of three in the University at Hólar with exemplary results. At the moment, she is a trainer at Sunnuhvoll over the summertime but studying at the University over the winter months. Despite the young age, Árný has years of experience in breaking in and training young horses and for the last couple of years done well on the oval track.  

Arnar and Árny have both been riders for the Icelandic national team, Arnar four times and Árný once. With Arnars very competitive younger sisters, Glódís and Védís and tournaments  almost every weekend (except for fall) things can get quite busy.. But our goal is not always reaching the oval track, first and foremost we aim for a supple horse with a happy rider!

Arny will be available for private lessons on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Lessons will be $50 payable to Arny.
