  1. 1. Please find below the latest news from FEIF, the International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations. FEIF is bringing people together in their passion for the Icelandic horse. More information can be found on our website: . For mobile users: . Committee meetings in Malmö The Board of FEIF and the different committees will meet in the weekend of October 25 - 27, 2013 in Malmö, Sweden. The Board and the department committees for Breeding, Sport, Education, Youth Work and Leisure Riding will meet to prepare for the Annual Meetings during the FEIF Conference 2014. The Sport Judges Committee and the FEIF Event Committee will meet as well. There will be a special meeting for WorldFengur Registrars. At several moments, all committees will meet together to discuss items of common interest and to report about developments in the different departments. FEIF Education seminar 2013 The sun shone kindly on the FEIF Education seminar, which took place 6-8 September near Uppsala, Sweden. About 80 participants enjoyed a great weekend at the Agersta Icelandic Horse Centre. The event kicked off with the latest research on the 'pace gene', and the practical implications that seem to open up, are astonishing (more to come!) But the focus of the seminar was on good teaching practises, and central to the programme were the very different but equally stimulating demonstration lessons given by Mette Manseth, a truly inspired teacher, Stian Pedersen, rider with a magic touch, and Magnus Skúlason, king of pace. These lessons were followed by a lot of questions and debate. We also had an opportunity to see and discuss the new töltfimi, or tölt-in-harmony class. Thank you Sweden! The organisation, hospitality and excellent company were second to none. Thank you! 10/10 points. A fuller report on the event will follow shortly and be published on the FEIF website. Youth Camp 2013 The 2013 FEIF Youth Camp was hosted by NIHF and Stall Kjersem in cooperation with Stall SP and Vestnes Islandshestforening. Stall Kjersem is located in the idyllic Kjersem Mountains, halfway between Molde and Ålesund. There were 35 participants 13 - 18 years old from 11 member countries along with few country leaders. Björn Kjersem and Stian Pedersen with a great support of their wife´s and friends did a great job and offered a great variety of activities! During this awesome sunny week in the Norwegian mountains the program was loaded with activities such as riding up to Blafjallet, hiking with the famous Stein P. Aasheim, training with five times World champion Stian Pedersen, watching 'green' training,
  2. 2. watching interesting movies from old times, Mongolian trip, and a trip to Sweden to buy a coffee, and these activities all included Icelandic horses. Furthermore there was one day of sightseeing and shopping in Ålesund, competing in a local horse club at Tresjord hestesenter and of course making new friends for life. Stian gave also a lecture of how he trains his horses and told the kids how to get to the top! In the beautiful surroundings of Stall Kjersem, in old Norwegian houses with great food, and no internet nor cellphone connection, the participants had a lot of fun during this great and unforgettable week. Thank you NIHF, Björn, Helen, Stian, Agnes, Liv and Stein for a great week.
