Teitur och Dynfari
A pace competition is never boring when Henning Drath is the speaker. Not many can fire an audience like him. Of course, what’s most important about PP1 is to see amazing races, and that we did tonight. Teitur Árnason stepped to the top of the podium as the new world champion reaching 8.66 with his horse Dynfari frá Steinnesi. The former world champion and world record holder Magnús Skúlason and his homebred horse Valsa från Brösarpsgården won the silver medal this time, only three hundredths behind Teitur and Dynfari, thus 8.63. A tiny mistake in the second race unfortunately cost them the gold medal. The bronze medal went to Bergthor Eggertsson and Besti frá Upphafi who scored 8.46. Daniel Ingi Smárason with the super mom Hulda från Margaretehof was honorably placed seventh.
Elsa Teverud and her lovely gelding Kopar frá Sunnuhvoli won the bronze medal among young riders with the score 6.59. Isa Norén and Hektor från Bråtorps gård were placed fourth. Gold medal was awarded to Iceland and Benjamin Sandur Ingólfsson who were superior in pace test and scored 7.71. Silver went to Helen Klaas and Vif van´t Groote Veld (6.63) representing Germany.
