Our youth members are important for the future of the IHSGB. We’re committed to the development and welfare of our youth members.

We aim to provide our youth members with opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of the Icelandic Horse, improve their skills as riders and make friends! Some of the ways we do this are:

  • Organising the application, selection and arrangements for FEIF Youth Events
  • Running Youth classes at events such as the British Championships
  • Highest Placed Youth Awards at events
  • Youth E-bulletin

 FEIF Youth Events

As a member association of FEIF-International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations, the IHSGB can select a certain number of our Youth members to attend FEIF Youth Events such as the FEIF International Youth Camp, FEIF Youth Cup and the FEIF Young Leaders Seminar. The Youth Camp and Youth Cup take place in alternating years, and are hosted by one of its member countries.

The national Youth Leader sits on the board of trustees of the IHSGB. The Youth Leader is responsible for taking your comments, opinions and ideas to the trustee board monthly meetings, representing IHSGB Youth at FEIF, and helping the steer the direction of IHSGB Youth.
