  • 1. In memory of Gunnar Bjarnason A group of horsemen in Iceland has built a monument at Hvanneyri in Iceland with the support of FEIF to honor the memory of Gunnar Bjarnason, (1915-1998). Gunnar was one of the most important persons in the history of the Icelandic horse in the 20th century. He was the chief horse breeding consultant for Iceland in the years 1940-1961, and a key person in promoting the Icelandic horse in Europe and North- America. Gunnar was also one of the founders of the Icelandic Equestrian Association and later FEIF. The monument is made out of stainless steel and rock, and forms the profile of a horse´s head on a foundation of rocks. The artist is Bjarni Þór Bjarnason, and the foundation was made by Unnsteinn Elíasson.

  • 2. abilities for riders to access nature. The survey is initiated on the basis of the discussions at the recent conference in Strasbourg. Two major issues were discussed in the Leisure Riding Committee: - What characterized the ideal leisure riding horse? - How do we preserve the ability to access nature for riders in future? Both issues seemed to be highly relevant in all participating member countries. Hopefully the results of the result of the survey will be useful in identifying solutions and approaches to secure access. It is the hope of the Leisure Riding Committee that responses will be received end of September this year for further processing. Meanwhile the Leisure Riding Committee will continue discussions on the characteristics of the ideal leisure riding horse.
