The 2019 International Eventing Forum (IEF) will take place on February 4, 2019, at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, England.

Established in 2004, the IEF has grown and developed into a ‘must attend’ pre-season educational event. This year’s theme is “Better – Not More Education” will address the concept that not all training is created equal. As stated on the event’s website: “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.”

Speakers include Adam Kemp and Matt Frost, who will give a presentation called “Simple Still Works,” followed by British Eventing Team performance manager Dickie Waygood on “Direct Riding.” In the afternoon session, former show jumping world champion Dermott Lennon will speak on “The Jumping Test” and “The Solution.”
