The International Eventing Forum is a highlight of the off season for eventers across the pond, and this year’s schedule is especially exciting in that Jimmy Wofford will be traveling from the U.S. to speak at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire on Feb. 1.

This year’s theme is “Back to the Future.” Here’s a look at the detailed schedule and who will be speaking:

10-10:10 Introduction from Eric Smiley

10:15-11:30 Angela Tucker: “What Doesn’t Change?” with Pippa Funnell and Tina Cook

11:30-12 Andrew Mahon and Jon Killingbeck: “The Use and Effect of Studs”

12-12:45 Jimmy Wofford: “An Eventful Story”

12:45-1:45 Lunch

1:45 David Kearney: “The Helpful Coach”

2:30-4:15: Lucinda Green: “Forward to the Past”

If you’d like to hear Lucinda speak but can’t make it to the International Eventing Forum in February, auditing spots are still open for her clinic at Loch Moy Farm in Adamstown, Maryland this weekend. Click here for more information and to sign up on Event Clinics.
