Landsmót hestamanna in Reykjavík 2018
The National Icelandic Horse Competition, known to Icelanders as the “Landsmót” is the largest outdoor sporting event in Iceland showcasing Iceland’s best horses and riders.
The first Landsmot was held at the Thingvellir National Park in 1950, and has since then grown into the full blown bi-annual country festival that it is today.
Gæðingakeppni, Tölt and breeding horses
The main theme of the event is an all Icelandic Riding Horse Competition “Gæðingakeppni” where riders of all ages and their horses compete in an event composed of showing all five gaits of the Icelandic horse, Tölt, trot, walk, gallop and Pace. The parallel theme is a competition and show of breeding horses, were the best stallions and breeding mares are shown and rated. As Tölt is the most treasured gait of the Icelandic horse, the highlight of the Landsmot is always the Tölt Competition where the best Tölt horses and their riders compete for the Landsmot Tölt Champion Title.
The event is a week long, acquiring over 100 volunteers a total staff of over 200. Apart from being a horse competition, the event is a popular spectator and family Country Festival. The Landsmot area is transformed into a village featuring a large camp site, markets with a variety of goods, children’s playgrounds, a line-up of Icelandic entertainers performing during the week, and a number of Icelandic food vendor offering a wide variety of culinary choices.
