FEIF - International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations 
FEIF Feather Prize

In 2002, the Board of FEIF decided to establish a new prize: the FEIF Feather Prize.
The aim of this prize is to encourage good riding and good horsemanship, a tribute to feather light riding. The awarded rider sets an example to the Icelandic Horse World.
The FEIF Feather Prize is awarded once a year on a specific event to a specific rider.
