FEIF - International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations 
Director of Leisure Riding

The Director of Leisure Riding has overall responsibility within FEIF for promoting international cooperation between the member associations in the field of leisure riding.

Lone Høgholt got her first Icelandic horse in 1998 and shortly thereafter she joined the Leisure Riding Group under the Danish Icelandic Horse association. During the years to follow she has participated in the work relating to politically securing the leisure riders’ access to nature, both on local and national level. This work has comprised work involving other horse organizations, other interest groups,  interested parties and Ministries.

Having never ridden before, but dreamt about riding, Lone decided for  the Icelandic horse because of its ability to ride in nature, its personality and indisputable charm and because it plays a fascinating and important role in Nordic history. Riding in nature, in different and varying terrain and enjoying the turns of seasons and surrounding wildlife together with horses and friends is the “fuel” for Lone.

Lone believes that there are two key elements in securing the future success of the Icelandic breed: 

•         access to ride in nature, which attracts so many leisure riders,  and

•         the preservation of the unique characteristics and reliable temperament of the horses.

 

Lone Høgholt (DK) is the Director of Leisure Riding, having been elected at the Delegates Assembly in Sweden in 2012.
