The International Icelandic Horse Federation Youth Cup is taking place in Sweden, between 28 July & 4 August, and 16 year old Cristina Edwards, from Whitchurch, is representing Great Britain – the only British rider to qualify! Fifteen countries will be participating in the week-long event which consists of three days of training, a rest day
exploring the horse culture of Sweden, and three days of competition. The riders will take part in Icelandic sport – oval track competition, pace track, countryside riding, flag race, dressage and new for 2018, Tolt in Harmony.
They must be competent in all discipline and prepared to train hard and to compete at top level competition, plus have a whole lot of fun!
This is Cristina’s second Youth Cup – and we wish her all the best in this exciting international event.
Cristina keeps her Icelandic “Kvika” at Solva Icelandics, which has one of the largest herds of the rare gaited
horses in the UK.
