2015 New World Record in Flying Pace (P1)

Søren Madsen from Denmark riding  Hárekur frá Hákoti age 13  set a new world record for flying pace (P1) of 31.49 seconds at 250 meters at the Icelandic horse World Championships.  This was .1 second faster than the previous record.  A few moments later Guðmundur Einarsson rode  Sproti frá Sjávarbog [IS199715724] to reach the same time.  Sproti is 18 years old, or one year younger than my horse Blessi.  

The gold medal went to Einarsoon and Sproti.

Gotta love the long term usability of those Icelandics.  Imagine an 18-year old horse setting a world record?

Here's the video of Madsen and Harekur's winning ride.
