FEIF: A brief introduction
FEIF is the International organisation for Icelandic horses, for which Great Britain is a member. There are specific youth events organised by FEIF for Young riders:
FEIF Youth Camp
This event is open to riders 12 – 18 years of age. It is held every other year (odd years) in varying host countries – with varying activities, with emphasis on making new friends from around the FEIF nations and having fun – which it always is! You experience some traditions from the host country and without a doubt, come home tired and with lots of new friends!
FEIF Youth Cup
Open to riders 13 – 17 years of age. This event is held every other year (even years). Each FEIF member country can send a team of young riders to take part in 3 days of advanced training, followed by 3 days of competition, including oval track, pace, dressage, countryside riding, trail and flag race. Competitors are placed into ‘international teams’ which they train with and compete for during the Cup. This is a wonderful way to learn from trainers and make new and lasting friends for life.
