50 years of FEIF
„FEIF unites people in their passion for the Icelandic horse!“
Author: Nicole de Boer
In 1969, a group of Icelandic horse enthusiasts started FEIF in Germany. The name of the organization was a statement of what they were: friends of the Icelandic Horse: Federation of European Icelandic Horse Friends (FEIF). Nowadays, FEIF stands for International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations and represents Icelandic horse associations in 21 countries with more than 80.000 members in total. Its vision is to unite people in their passion for the Icelandic horse.
FEIF has made history since then. It mana- ged to make the Icelandic horse more widely known. It is a binding element for the international Icelandic horse world, while building bridges between cultures and languages and political differences. With endless work and enthusiasm FEIF has thus secured the pure breeding of the Icelandic horse.
