To establish a good selection of breeding mares has been an important part of philosophy of the Hjardartun. Our mares come from quality breeding mares because our motto declares that a mother’s horse is just as important or even more important than the father. Most of our breeding mares are descended from the award-winning mares Gletta from Bakkakot, Dögg from Breidholt, Pandra from Reykjavik and Lukka from Stora-Vatnsskardi.

Our ambition is to breed horses with nice character who are lightly built with good neck, enriched with a lot of energy and an X-factor. The ranch emphasizes clear gates with high movements and balance, knowledge of all gaits alongside a fun working spirit.
