The international umbrella organisation is called FEIF, with a membership of national Icelandic horse associations from 20 countries from Europe, America and Australia / New Zealand.

a single set of rules

FEIF hosts meetings where important issues and matters of this community are discussed and decided upon. This includes, for instance, rules and regulations for competitions, guidelines for the judges, exchanging views on breeding goals, education matters, youth work, and much more. Within the FEIF countries there is a single set of rules for breeding and competition matters, which is quite unique in the horse world in general.
