The motto of the 2021 photo competition is “People and Horses” – organized by FEIF and IPZV e.V.  and we are looking forward to welcoming all FEIF member associations. The photos will be selected by an international jury and the best photos will be published as a calendar.

This calendar, which is intended to illustrate the bond between Icelandic horse riders, cannot be purchased, but you can ride to receive it!. Currently there are the following possibilities to get a calendar of this very limited edition:

  1. Participate in the photo competition. 50 photographers will each receive a calendar.
  2. Be among the 50 best participants in the FEIF Tour Rider Cup (entry via the FEIF website) to receive a calendar.
