4 Girls at 4 Championships

We are four girls (Lisa, Hanna, Anja and Veronika) from the Bavarian Forest in Germany and grew up with Icelandic Horses. In 2010 we discovered the possibility to help as Volunteers at the WC in Austria. Luckily, we just turned 16 and 18 years, so we were able to go to St. Radegund and help at our first WC. That’s when the fire started!! Since then we‘ve been at every other WC (Berlin, Herning and Oirschot), where we enjoyed great competitions as well as the amazing spirit and community as Volunteers!
Of course we are coming to Berlin in 2019 and are already looking forward to it.

See you all there and till then-let‘s tölt :)

Home Game

Hello dear Isi fans!

I'm Bernadette, 26 years old and from Berlin. Since I had a “home game” in 2013 and only needed 20 minutes to the World Championship grounds, I had registered as a volunteer.

My work started a while before the Championships, when we took care of a stand at the ITB and made good advertising for the World Cup.

At the Championships itself, I was assigned as an instructor at the campsite. Because of that I was relatively far away from the action, but there were enough breaks in which you could watch and visit something. So I was able to welcome all visitors und got infected of their excitement and good mood.

From volunteer to being a rider

Hello, my name is Lena, I'm 21 years old and I'm from Vienna. 2015 I was at the World Championships in Herning for the first time. I came up with the idea in the autumn 2014, while I was working in Iceland and planed with some, mainly German girls, that we all would meet again at the World Championships in Herning.

At the time, that was more like a crazy idea, nevertheless we registered online as a volunteer. In the end Anne from Lübeck & I were together in Denmark 2015.

Helping friends with a big event

Hi! I’m Hildur and am 20 years old. I come from Iceland, but I live in the south of Sweden where I am studying to become a nurse. I’ve loved horses for as long as I can remember and Icelandic horses have always been my favorite kind of horse, because they are so unique in my opinion.

During 2014 I was thinking about which kind of ticket I wanted to buy for the world championships for Icelandic horses in Herning in 2015. On the webpage I found a section where I could sign up as a volunteer. I decided to do so, and I got a great job in the ticket-team. Work did not feel like work. The work I did almost felt more like helping friends with a big event!

Behind the scenes

Hello everybody, my name is Michaela, I´m 58 years old and I live in a village near Bonn. Since 1986 I own Icelandic Horses, at the moment 7, and since 2011 we have our own tiny stable.

At the WC 2013 in Berlin, I had the idea to volunteer at the next Championships. I realized this premise and so I became a team-member of the WC 2015 in Herning. My first job was giving out the volunteer clothes. When this position was no longer in demand, I changed to the betting booth what was a totally new experience. I haven´t seen this before on any Icelandic Horses WC. In our free time we met all together at the grandstands and watched and cheered all the great horses.

 The next WC in Oirschot also welcomed me. This time for two weeks.
