All FEIF International Sport Judges at WorldRanking events can nominate riders to be included in the list of Good and Harmonious Riding because of their fine riding style. This is independent from the test, or the marks given. Máni Hilmarsson was nominated 8 times at 4 different events, Susanne Birgisson (DE) was nominated 11 times at 3 different events, and she won the FEIF Feather Prize at the World Championships. Congratulations to all 144 riders who have been nominated for Good and Harmonious Riding in the 2023 competition season. Thank you to all riders listed for being such excellent examples of the type of riding we want to see in our sport!
