FEIF - International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations
Youth Cup

The focus of the bi-annual FEIF YouthCup is on teamwork, sportsmanship, improved riding skills and cross-cultural friendships.

International Friendships
FEIF YouthCup is arranged every second year and consists of a week of intense training with respected instructors of international standing. The week ends in a competition with a range of youth classes on and off the oval track. Riders aged between 14 and 17 train and compete in international teams, with the aim of fostering friendship and an awareness of cultural difference. The language at all international FEIF events is English.

Usually, participants have some experience of competition riding. Most riders bring their own horses for the event, and for applicants from overseas, good rental horses are available.
