  • Horsemanship
  • Lifelong friendships
  • Learning about other cultures
  • Tolerance of those with differing opinions
  • International exchange
  • Teamwork capability
  • Responsibility
  • Development of one’s own personality
  • Seeing positive values
  • Having a good time together

Over the years the youth work within FEIF has develop a great deal. It all started in 1986 when a first “international youth week” was arranged by FEIF and the Netherlands. Over the years the work has grown and today a FEIF Youth Camp is arranged every odd year, a FEIF Youth Cup is arranged every even year and all member countries are entitled to bring 3 young rider to participate in special classes on the World Championships, competing to win the title as the most promising young rider.
