The World Championships for Icelandic Horses 2013 will take place in Berlin, capital of Germany. The Board of FEIF has honored the application made by our German member association IPZV. The venue is Karlshorst, a location used for other horse sports as well. Close to the city of Berlin, but at the same time enough space for excellent sport competitions, exciting breeding shows and side programs (culture, entertainment, education). The aim is to bring the Icelandic horse to the people of Berlin and – at the same time – bring the passionate friends of the Icelandic Horse to the fascinating city of Berlin. The Board is convinced that all options are there to reach this goal.
