@OlympicIRL Apparently there was a huge leap in Jonty's campaign this weekend. :woot:

 

Yes, now over 50% (closer to 60%) of the way there last time i checked. And he now has an auction available with all sorts of quirky and great items, such as a lesson with Andrew Nicholson!! :woot:

 

I might bid for the bracelet made up of Art's hair but I doubt I will win the bid as it already stands at £130! Here is the auction site:

@dcro Help! Apparently there's a world championships going on in the Netherlands at the moment, something about Icelandic Horses, but I have no idea what it is, so, what is it? :d

First time I hear it. Looks like it's some young horse/preliminary dressage competition, for Icelandic horses of course. :d Though, the intriguing part seems to be that this breed has 5 gaits, instead of usual 3 gaits (walk, trot, canter). They also have tölt and skeið (flying pace). :d

 

Anyway, before this the only thing I knew about Icelandic horses is that importing all other breeds is banned in Iceland because of them.

Well, trying to write something on a Dutch website about this that makes sense is going to pose a major challenge, so it seems :lol:

 

I thought there was gallop too for 'normal' horses :p
