No Landsmót this Summer

Vala Hafstað

The horse show Landsmót, which was to be held at Hella, South Iceland, in July, has been postponed until July 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Morgunblaðið reports. The decision was made this week by the Icelandic Equestrian Association, the Horse Breeders Association and organizers of the show.
