The board of Meistaradeild Líflands would like to thank all participants and congratulates the riders on their remarkable achievements. The next event will take place on February 29th in HorseDay Höllin, featuring the fivegait competition. Last year's winners were Sara Sigurbjörnsdóttir and Flóki frá Oddhólli, who later became world champions. Therefore it is clear that Flóki and Sara will not compete, so it will be interesting to see who wins the fivegait in Meistaradeild Líflands 2024.
We look forward to seeing you in three weeks in HorseDay Höllin!
