Theme for 2019 – ‘Better – Not More Education’!
Over the last ten years, as the sport of Eventing has continued to evolve and struggles to find where it fits in being accepted with the viewing public, we have heard that “more training” is the answer. On one side, this would seem reasonable, on the other side it is a flawed solution. Training can only be of value if pupils are in a receptive place and educators understand what is of value to teach. So often pupils think that just because they are there and attend training, things get better! Training and trainers so often go through the motions with little perception that they are in fact making things worse, because they are confusing the message.
With more training there is a perception that “we are making things better and we’re doing our bit”. Not so.
Not all training is bad…..but there is a lot that is.
This belief forms the basis for the theme of the 2019 International Eventing Forum, which sees another high-class line up of speakers coming together for a day of education and inspiration.
