The Icelandic Horse Association of Australia (IHAA) was formed in 2008 by a small group of Icelandic Horse owners and breeders. The aim was to form a group to facilitate the registration of the Australian bred Icelandic Horses and, to generally promote and protect the unique qualities of the breed. Since the start of 2016 we are an Associate member of FEIF (www.feif.org), the governing worldwide body of Icelandic horse enthusiasts who help us stay in touch with the registration, breeding and judging goals, and have educational resources available from experts in the Icelandic horse world.
