Icelandic Horse Connection
Hi!I think it´s great that you´r telling the world about the negative sides in Icelandic horse competitions, but what about the positives? There are many "soft" riders out there doing a great job!If you consider how young this sport is compared to other horse sports, it has developed a lot the last years as I know it. There´s an maximum limit for the thickness and length of the shoe, a limit for length of the hoof and limit for the extra weight (250 grams). If the horse starts to bleed from the mouth the rider will be disqualified and also for bad riding while good riding is rewarded with extra points. Of course there´s some downsides, but at least it´s going the right way! Btw, check out the rules for sport competitions at www.feif.org
come on! i cane find lots of pictures from all horserinde disiplines. there are always a few people who can't ride.
