Organisation WC 2023


It’s time to start our new and incredible ride…

The World Championships for Icelandic Horses are organised by FEIF and the WK2023 team. The core of this team are Coen Buijsse, Niek van Nunen, and Marc Dusseau, who also organised previous World Championships in Oirschot, the Netherlands.

About the WC

The World Championships for Icelandic Horses is an outstanding event in the equestrian world, where hundreds of horses and riders from more than 19 countries gather in Oirschot, the Netherlands to show their best on the oval- or pace track. Because the Icelandic horse can show up to four or five gaits, there are many disciplines with opportunities to distinguish themselves. An event such as this attracts many visitors from the entire world!

We welcome all these horses, riders and visitors to Oirschot in 2023, where the WC was also held in 2017. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the Icelandic horse and all that surrounds this unique breed. There will be shops and exhibitors, lectures and presentations, and several bands and artists will perform in the evenings. In short, this is an event where you’ll always find something to see or do!

We welcome you to the WC2023 in Oirschot!
