About Us

In 1991 horse owners in Dalvík and around moved their activities to Hringsholt. Before that , the house kept foxes and minks. The building Hringsholt was at that time unique in the country. The Hourse club Hringur got a place for its activities and along that they build up a competition court, riding hall and riding roads – all in one place. There we saw the possibility in starting a horse riding company. In 1999 the horse rental Tvistur was formed. The name Tvistur comes from a unique horse of ours that we lost way too early. The founders and owners of Tvistur Horse rental are the couple Sveinbjörn Hjörleifsson and Elín Unnarsdóttir.
