My Work


At my training facility in Árbæjarhjáleiga we train up to 40 horses each time. These horses are from our own breeding as well as horses from others. If you are looking for a trainer for your horse, don’t hesitate to contact me!


Teaching is so much fun. I many time say that I help the horses with their riders. I teach in Iceland and abroad. I have been teaching for two great schools : Hólar and the acricultural school of Hvanneyri. If you are interested in a riding lesson please contact me!


At Árbæjarhjáleiga II we get 12-15 foals every year. Our breeding has a strong connection to Ófeigur frá Flugumýri which is not very common anymore and for us quite special.

About Me

My name is Hekla Katharína Kristinsdóttir and I was born on the 26th of August in 1990 in Reykjavík. My husband is Eiríkur Vilhelm Sigurðarson and we are blessed with two children, Vilhelm Bjartur Eiríksson (3 years old) and Áslaug María Eiríksdóttir (1 year old).

It is my profession to train horses and to teach people how to understand and improve their horse. I feel so privileged to work with my passion. I am an educated riding teacher and horse train from the University of Hólar and graduated there in 2012 with the highest score overall.
