FEIF - International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations
The “Gæðingakeppni” is the most widely spread form of competition on horseback in Iceland. There are many reasons or this, for one it is in very much line with the old traditions around the Icelandic horse and in the Gæðingakeppni the special characteristics of the Icelandic horse can be expressed better than in other competitions. Traits like spirit and character, form under the rider and the power that lies within, together with the free and simple form of the competition make it easy to approach the horse in a positive manner and thus to show the horse at its best.
