Name: Svadi

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Icelandic

Birth: 2012

Status: With Blue Rider Since 2018

Svadi came into Riding Instructor Becky’s life as a three year old in 2015, and they came to Blue Rider together in 2018. Svadi is currently the only privately owned horse in our herd. Like most Icelandics, Svadi is strong, thoughtful, calm, and brave. He also is very mischievous, and if he doesn’t have a job to do, he will find one! He loves to play with the other horses, especially Fritz and Falcur. Svadi is very well trained for his age and can teach riders quite a lot about clear and careful communication. He is very good at dressage and loves to jump! He also excels as a therapy horse and frequently tells the instructors what they ought to do (and he’s usually right). Svadi is very adventurous, and loves a challenge.

Svadi is a rarity, in that he has had very few injuries, and has always been treated well. We put a lot of effort into keeping his body strong and comfortable, so that he may continue to be a star in the program for years to come.
