More than any other department, the leisure portfolio shows up both the strengths and the challenges faced by the ambitious project that is FEIF, and our stated mission of: uniting people in their passion for the Icelandic horse. It is (relatively) easy to bring together sport riders, who are driven by demonstrating their skills, and those of their horses, in competition with others. It is also (relatively) easy to bring together breeders with the shared goal of protecting and improving the breed. Youth work focuses on a clearly defined group, and training trainers to the highest possible shared standards is completely goal-orientated. But what about the rest of us?
