Young Horse Assessment:
The horse will be assessed for conformation and gaits, running free in a fenced off arena. The winner of each age category will be announced at the AGM.
Potential FIZO horses:
Elisabeth will look at the horses’ conformation and you will then show the individual gaits on a straight track. You will receive an indication of possible marks and training tips for the FIZO presentation next year in May 2023. You can also participate if you are not thinking of a FIZO presentation, but would like to receive the judge’s comments.
The IHSGB will kindly underwrite this event series, so that we can offer an opportunity to present your horse/s, come and learn and meet fellow Icelandic Horse owners for an interesting event for a lower cost than usual.
Young Horse assessment (the horse runs free, comments about conformation and gaits):
£ 30 (IHSGB members)
£ 45 (non members)
Potential FIZO horse (presenting your horse ridden and for comments about its conformation, as well as receiving training tips):

Part 2: (separate invitation will follow in due course)
Part 2 will consist of 3 webinars to be held over winter.
