Urvalshestar is a Horse Center owned and operated by Magnus Larusson and Svanhildur Hall.  It is located at the farm Holtsmúli, approximately 90 km east of Reykjavík.

Magnús and Svanhildur live in Holtsmúli with their two daughters Edda Margrét who was born on January 8th, 2006 and Berglind María born on May 29th 2008.  In addition to the family, three or four working students generally live in Holtsmúli.  These students come from all over the world to learn how to train and ride horses.  In return for learning how to ride and train, those students work in the barn.
The horses in Holtsmúli count approximately thirty broodmares and their offspring.  Please read about our Icelandic horse breeding under the link breeding here on the left.  In addition to the breeding herd, we have a stable for forty horses.  Some of the horses belong to us and others are here for training.  Please read about our horse training under the training link on the left.

The facilities in Holtsmúli are great for horse training.  The horses are kept in spacious boxes, and attached to the barn is an indoor arena which is necessary for training horses and giving riding lessons.
