The Icelandic horse is an incredibly versatile breed and each horse is special in terms of characteristics as well as level of training. Similarly, each rider is different, requiring different traits from his or her riding horse.
FEIF has introduced the Riding Horse Profile to help riders find the perfect horse for their individual needs. It is based on a combination of two forms: one about the buyer’s needs and one about the horse’s abilities. A professional trainer will try each horse and evaluate its strengths and weaknesses in order to complete their form.The interested buyers also provide information about their abilities and needs. Based on the information about the horses and buyers, it will be much easier to find a suitable match for everyone!
