Make this season your best yet by attending the International Eventing Forum (IEF) where you can learn training techniques from Olympic medalist, Chris Burton.
This year’s theme is ‘The Next Generation’, which will look at how riders need to progress and evolve in order to achieve success in the years to come.
The IEF has established itself as a ‘must attend’ event for British Eventing (BE) competitors and trainers of all levels. Held at Hartpury College it welcomes some of the sports most influential equestrians. Previous presenters include legends Lucinda Green, Mark Todd, Andrew Nicholson and Chris Bartle.
This years’ line-up is equally impressive, with Australia’s Olympic bronze medalist Chris Burton headlining the event.
The morning session will see demonstrations from Tracie Robinson (dressage trainer for Equestrian Team GBR) and Caroline Moore (BE junior team coach). Attendees will then get insights into how three top class eventing grooms keep their horses fit, sound and at peak performance.
The afternoon session will be led by Badminton’s new course designer, Eric Winter, who will discuss next generation cross-country, joined by Chris.
