In the bleak midwinter, we look forward to the small glimmers of hope offered to us (at least here in the U.K., where we don’t have nice things like Aiken and Ocala). One of those gems is the International Eventing Forum, held each February at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, at which professionals at the heart of the industry gather to discuss and demonstrate training methods, philosophies, and viewpoints to the sport. As the 2018 Forum looms just ahead of us, your Friday video this week is an educational look into life behind the scenes as an eventing #supergroom.

Imo Mercer, Alex Van Tuyll, and Zanie King have travelled around the world with their charges and amassed an incredible amount of knowledge. Oh, and there’s a bonus Burto. And Badminton course designer Eric Winter! The Forum is a gift that just keeps. On. Giving.
