Youth Work in FEIF

Bringing together young people from across FEIF member countries - who all share the passion for the Icelandic horse - is the main goal for the youth work department. We want to create common experience and foster life skills to strengthen individuals and build transnational communities in all of the following areas:

  • Horsemanship
  • Responsibility for self and others and horses
  • Lifelong friendships
  • Intercultural communication and understanding
  • Tolerance of those with differing opinions
  • Teamwork capability
  • Development of personal skills
  • Seeing positive values
  • Caring for one another through good times and "tougher"

FEIF Youth Work 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. As of 2013, young riders participate in the World Championships and can gain their own World Championship titles.
2015  saw the first FEIF Youth Video competition and 2016 the first FEIF Young Leaders' Seminar.
