After six years, the TiH organisation finally reached its primary goal last spring: FEIF took over the TiH concept. FEIF decided to change the name into ”Figures”. We find the takeover to be absolutely fantastic!
Now we hope and wish that many courses, clinics and competitions in the Figures tests will be arranged all over the world. Figures is great fun for riders also on an early stage in their education. It allows riders to reach high marks even on Level 1 (the most simple one), since the criterias are lower on a low level. As the levels rise, so does the criterias. Figures is an excellent test for winter competitions, since it is perfect to perform in indoor riding halls.
We might post some updates on the TiH Facebook page in the future, but this is the last post on TiH’s website. The TiH homepage will still remain open, there you can find all specially educated instructors and judges. However please note that it will not be kept updated. On the homepage you will find documents in Swedish, English and some other languages.
Here we have gathered the important links, that is still useful for riders and those arranging Figures competitions:

Link to FEIF Judges:
The list of TiH certified judges does not include the FEIF International Judges, as they are already listed separately on the FEIF website. The reason is that FEIF does not issue the International license on a test-by-test basis so it was decided it would be strange to list some but not all FEIF judges. We also did not want to add names to the list of those FEIF judges who did not attend a TiH seminar.
A great and sincere thanks to all of you who has been members of the TiH organisation during those years. Through your fees we have been able to travel to FEIF-meetings and present the concept of TiH. In addition, there was almost 1 440 Euro (almost 16 000 SEK) in remaining assets, which the TiH organisation has handed over to FEIF. TiH never has had any administrative costs, and all our meetings have taken place over the phone.
Also many thanks to those of you who have arranged TiH Education Seminars in many countries. Your effort has led to that we today have many specially trained TiH instructors and judges across the world.
Below is the list of people who has supported TiH during the years. With so many people, it is easy to loose some names. We appologize if this has happened here – all of you who has been with us during the years are worth a lot to us!
