Last held in Australia back in 2005, the FEI Regional Dressage Forum is an international seminar for trainers, coaches, riders, officials and dressage enthusiasts from all over the world, who will converge at Willinga Park for both theoretical and practical demonstrations.

Its a debating platform in the world of international dressage.  Dressage techniques are scrutinised and examined. Current political proposals, which have an impact on dressage sport, are aired, and the latest developments in horse management and sports science are also presented.

Respected judges from all over the world also convene at the Forum to evaluate and discuss international judging with riders and trainers. The intention is to provide a medium through which a common dressage language and philosophy can evolve and spread globally.

Delegates are invited to be open minded to explore ideas, not only with sport ‘insiders’ but also with sports scientists and experts from other sports.
