The International Eventing Forum is the brain child of a group of experienced equestrian professionals who are passionate about the sport of eventing. They do say that ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ and from its inaugural date in 2004, the Forum has grown and developed into the ‘must attend’ pre-season fixture that it is today.

An essential date for riders and trainers of all levels of experience and ambition in the sport of eventing, the Forum brings the highest calibre of speakers, from Olympic Gold Medallists to the trainers of Olympic Gold Medallists, together with ‘demo’ riders of varying levels of experience and horses of all shapes, sizes and abilities, to offer attendees genuine insights into how to train better, safer and smarter, for improved and long-lasting performance results.David OConnor and Caroline Powell at the IEF

 

Taking place in the wonderful, indoor and heated facilities of Hartpury College, the title and focus of the Forum varies from year to year, but the format for the day remains consistent. Based around interaction between trainer, judge, course designer, rider and everyone that attends on the day the Forum benefits riders of all skill levels and ambitions, whether your goal is to win Badminton, or simply to compete at your first BE90, Intro, Riding Club or Pony Club event.

With topics each year covering all disciplines – dressage, cross country and showjumping, together with an exploration of topics such as essential veterinary insights and discussions surrounding rule updates and developments in course design, the International Eventing Forum is not to be missed.
