FEIF recognizes the importance of instructors and trainers in our community. These talented, dedicated individuals are essential to growing the Icelandic horse breed in terms of both popularity and utility all within the scope of FEIF’s mission. FEIF established an “Instructor/Trainer of the Year” award in 2016 to acknowledge the outstanding teachers and trainers in the community.
FEIF again invited all member countries to nominate until mid of December candidates as their top instructor/trainer for the year. The countries are free to choose any criteria to select their candidate, but they must fulfill the following requirements:The trainer/instructor must be a member of a FEIF member association, listed on the FEIF matrix 2020 and working as active instructor or trainer.
From January 10-17, the online voting period will be open and you will all be invited to support and vote for your favourite trainer or instructor. The start of the online voting period will be published on the FEIF website.
The honoring of the trainer/instructor with most votes will be done in February 2021.
