We offer a wide range of services..


Here at Vesturkot we run a comprehensive training center for all types of horses. Currently working at Vesturkot is Þórarinn Ragnarsson certified trainer and riding instructor and Hanne Smidesang an experience trainer and rider.

Price per horse a month is ISK 70.000 for mares and geldings and ISK 75.000 for stallions.

The horses are trained all weekdays and often on fridays the whole herd is taken out on a free run. We emphasise good preparation of all tasks ahead, whether it is competition, breeding shows or any other project you might be aiming at.


We offer both teaching here at Vesturkot but we can also come to any location you desire. Vesturkot offers very good facilities for riding lessons. Þórarinn Ragnarsson is the riding instructor at Vesturkot but he got his diploma from the Hólar University where he was awarded for good riding skills. We offer riding lessons for beginners and more advanced riders. The teaching can take place both in groups or just for individuals.

We tailor the lessons to fit the needs of our customers and design it to cover subjects depending on our customer´s wishes.

If you are interested in riding lessons please contact Þórarinn via phone, +354 8461575 or via email, vesturkot@vesturkot.is. You can also contact him through our Facebook page.

Feeding and upbringing

Vesturkot is a great place to breed and raise horses. Do you need a place for your horse? We board many great breeding horses at Vesturkot, owned by Icelanders and foreigners alike. The mares in our care have priority access to our stallions and if you would like to have them covered by some other stallions we can also arrange that for you.

Included is feeding, hoof care, surveillance and other care that is needed. Our goal is to make sure that your horse is healthy and happy.
