FEIF Feather Prize

In the continued push to improve riding skills to advance the welfare of our Icelandic horses, the Board of FEIF decided in 2002 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. In 2019 it was awarded to two riders – Bernhard Podlech from Germany and Johan Skúlason, member of the Icelandic team – at the World Championships 2019 in Berlin, Germany.
