CREATION OF THE IGEQ
The group is collaborating with the FEI (International Equestrian Federation) since 2001. The purpose is to create a list of FEI certified trainers. The first names were given in December 2001.
They are working together since 1992 and it has been a great contribution in international cooperation. They keep working closely so that a global training may be settled.
