THE VISION BEHIND WC 2025

Our Vision

The Icelandic horse scene in Switzerland is small but mighty! Year after year we watch our riders and horses grow at a rapid pace and look for ways to improve the sport and husbandry of the Icelandic horse every day. You can feel and see this passion and we want to make this something to experience with the WM2025.
