This spring marked a particularly special Knights of Iceland show as it was our debut performance on the West Coast. Léttleiki trainers Carrie and Terral flew out to California to ride in the show.

A week before the show practices in Santa Cruz, CA began.  Laura Benson and her sister Heidi Benson provided a home base and all the horses for this show.  Drill, sparklers, and fire kept our practices exciting and full of fun as usual.  It was also exciting for Carrie and Terral to put faces to names meeting California Icelandic horse owners and reuniting with beloved horse friends sold to the region .

The Knights of Iceland were one of the headlining performers at the Del Mar Show this year alongside Tommy Turvey and Bobby Kerr. We did a drill team performance, beer tölt, sparkler drill, and pace through fire. It is always an honor to meet and work alongside some of the best performers in the equine performance industry. The Knights of Iceland helps remind us what makes our horses special and connects us with our colleagues and the larger horse world.
