All those who applied to host the 2024 Landsmót, have been given the chance to let their application stay valid for the 2026 event instead.

B class gæðingar - Who are likely to win?

Like always, people have started to wonder which horses and riders are the most likely to reach such achievements as winning their class at LM2020 at Rangárbakkar, Hella.

The Market Village atmosphere

The market area is usually one of the biggest attractions when visiting a great event like Landsmót hestamanna. This summer Team Landsmót will set up a grand Market Village in a 900 sqm tent, that will be located between the main track and breeding track. Our guests can therefor use the breaks to explore exciting brands, products and services in our Market Village.
