FEIF Youth Country of the Year Award for 2023

February 5 2024 | Youth Work

The FEIF Youth Country of the Year Award for 2023 went to Luxembourg. A small country by most measures, the national association for Luxembourg nevertheless managed to create a good range of inclusive, creative and imaginative activities for their children and teenage rider members over the year. Who would not like to join in a two-day event for children which included games, craft activities, making their own book and 2 riding lessons per day? Or a village fete, showcasing the Icelandic horse?  Or a high-class photoshoot of up and coming (very) young stars with their horses? But that is not all. Teenage riders are given increasing possibilities to enter competitions at home and in neighbouring countries. At this speed of development, and with clear goals in mind, this group might well becoe a force to recon with. Congratulations to the Youthwork team of Luxembourg, and to all young participants. A copy of all reports submitted to the FEIF Youthwork Committee will be on feif.org very soon.
