A2I is now a full partnership between Gudmar and Rebecca. Joe will stay on as an employee, but has given his portion of the partnership to Rebecca. This increased ownership position will allow Rebecca to focus even more time and energy on continuing to raise the bar for the quality of A2I!
Gudmar is now nearly full time in Iceland and has new business ventures with Stadarhus, his farm and hotel, and the Horse Showplace Fakasel. This will serve to increase Gudmar’s connections to the thriving horse culture in Iceland and reap benefits for A2I AND our clients. Gudmar will be developing a structured curricula for the A2I clinics and will hand pick guest clinicians to give our clients a new and varied experience.
Due to the continued popularity of our original Educate and Rejuvenate trip we will be adding more of them in 2015. Every year we fill this trip and have a waiting list. It is unfair to have so many potential guests left out, so the best answer is to just make more! If you have never taken one of our trips, this is the best place to start. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced rider, there is something for everyone. In our experience, taking this trip is the best way to prep for one of our other trips that include a trek. We are also continuing to offer custom trips for your personal groups of 6 or more people. This is a great way for your family, and/or riding or photography club to enjoy the best of Iceland.
If anyone is wondering about the latest volcano activity in Iceland, the short answer is it is no risk to any of our operations. It is not near Stadarhus or any of our trek locations.
Hope to see you in 2015!
