Let´s get an Aussie Team to the World Championships in Berlin 2019!
Laura Hall-Smith and I have a dream - to get a team of riders to represent Australia and our Association at the next World Championships for Icelandic Horses. Our aim is to bring our community of Icelandic Horse Enthusiasts in Australia closer together. We want to put the Icelandic Horse and the Association in the spotlight and make this community grow. The committee of our Association has been working very hard over the past few years to build up a fantastic foundation to make this project possible!
This project will need everyone´s help! We are looking for people who are passionate about horses and would love to share this experience with us!
