Virtual Ride – From Home to Oirschot, 2017

The Virtual Ride offers everyone in the Icelandic horse world a chance to celebrate the flagship events Icelandic horse calendar: the World Championships and Landsmót. These events are held in alternating years on the European continent and Iceland respectively. In the course of a year, the Virtual Ride makes it possible for all Icelandic horse riders to make their way gradually to these events!

Riders participate solo or in teams. Each rider or team rides out according to their own time and fitness, keeping track of the approximate distance covered on each ride. The distances are tallied up and logged via the Virtual Ride website each month. Riders and teams can track their own progress -- and that of everyone else -- on the scoreboard.

This is not a competition, but FEIF would encourage all riders to join in the spirit of the fun that can be had along the way by sharing our passion for the Icelandic horse.

Riders may go on their own, or in groups. The idea is that all riders who live more than 800-1000 km away from the venue should form teams. Then all the ridden miles of team members will be added together to help them get to the destination. Fancy joining in? It is not too late. We can promise a lot of fun on the way, the opportunity to get to know Icelandic horse fans from all over the world, and best of all, you can take your own favourite horse to the next world Championships, or even to Landsmót – virtually.
