  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: www.feif.org . For mobile users: m.feif.org . WorldFengur - the studbook of origin Details on the history, the objectives, the background and most recent data on users and horses were presented to the participants of the WorldFengur seminar 2013. The complete presentation is available in the download section of the FEIF website. WorldFengur workshop 20 registrars and officials from 12 different FEIF countries participated in a WorldFengur workshop from October 25-27, 2013 in Malmö, Sweden. The objectives were to introduce & develop new features in WF, improve effective working with WF and increase team work between registrars could successfully be fulfilled. FEIF Committee Meetings 2013 From October 25 - 27, 2013 the FEIF Committee Meetings 2013 took place in Malmö, Sweden. The following committees met and used this opportunity for discussions within their group but also with other Groups and to prepare for the annual Meetings and the delegates' assembly 2014 in Iceland: sport, sport judges, breeding and breeding judges, youth, education, leisure riding and in addition most WorldFengur registrars and the FEIF Event Committee. Details on the topics discussed and the outcomes will be published within the next days. New International Sport Judges Two additional candidates completed the requirements to become licensed FEIF International Sport Judges at the FEIF Committee Meetings event in Malmö, Sweden. Oliver Kubinger (AT) and Sigríður Pjetursdóttir (IS) join Anette Lohrke (DE), Beatrix Berg (DE), Alexandra Baab (DE) and Valdimar Auðunsson (AT) as the newly licensed judges from 2013. Icelandic Horses at Olympic Games - a Dream Many people dream about Icelandic Horses at the Olympic Games. The same goes for an 11 year old German girl, ElisaMarie Schroeder, who decided to find out why we are not there. Se did - on her own account - write a letter to the German Olympic Sport Board and did get a hand written answer from the responisble person, Maike Elger. The letter explains that so many different sports want to take part, that not all fit in into the program. Horse sport at Olympic Games is under pressure anyway, as the (potential) number of people watching the different disciplines is the most important factor to decide which sports are included. And as
  2. 2. more people are watching other sports, horse sport (including dressage and jumping) has been downgraded recently. There are also requirements about the number of active sporters on different continents which makes it rather difficult for sport with Icelandic Horses to be included. Let's hope this will not discourage Elisa-Marie to continue her sport activities with Icelandic horses. The FEIF Youth Cup 2016 will welcome her!
