FEIF - International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations 
Breeding Rules (FIZO)

In 1994 a joint declaration on the breeding of Icelandic horses was signed by FEIF and the State of Iceland, recognising Iceland as the country of origin of the Icelandic horse. This declaration ensures that the 18 FEIF member nation states outside Iceland will do their best to follow the lead of Iceland in all matters of breeding and the use of the horse. This cooperation is based on Icelandic regulation nr. 948/2002 regarding the country of origin of the Icelandic horse. According to this regulation, a advisory committee of three members, the national breeding advisor of Iceland, the breeding leader of FEIF and chairman appointed by the agricultural minister of Iceland governs all rules concerning breeding of the Icelandic horse.

This means that all changes in the FEIF Breeding rules (FIZO), accepted by the Delegates' Assembly, have to be confirmed by this board. Finally the changes need to be confirmed by the agricultural minister of Iceland in a regulation on the country of origin of the Icelandic horse.
During recent years Iceland has put a great emphasis on quality in their national horse breeding. The timing of this work has fitted very well into FEIF wishes for further breeding policy developments in the international arena. A fruitful co-operation between FEIF and Víkingur Gunnarsson, former FEIF Breeding leader, and Ágúst Sigurðsson, the former national horse breeding advisor in Iceland has taken place during recent years. Members of FEIF Breeding working groups too, have, throughout the years made their time and skill freely available for work on the FIZO. Everybody with the silent hope that the present FIZO shall achieve the aim of all FEIF member nation states - one breeding assessment system for all individual Icelandic horses - the best in the world.

The FIRO is the general rule book of FEIF. It contains the Code of Conduct (FEI) and rules that apply for all (organised) events with Icelandic horses, like veterinary rules, doping and arbitration. The FIRO also contains additional information, like rules and requirements for organisers of World Championships and FEIF Youth Cup. Click here to download FIRO.
