The seminars and excursions will be held on 10 - 11 November and the General Assembly on 11 November 2014. Both before and after these two days there are organized bus trips to the Brasileiro de Hipismo Festival, a big CSI showjumping competition nearby and a guided tour around São Paulo.

Last year’s new initiative with a workshop will be continued and the topic this year will be: "Breeding for high performance greatly damages leisure riding horse quality? Yes or No."

Seminar topics include "Modern techniques of assisted reproduction" by Dr. Marco Alvarenga, "Regenerative therapy for athletic horses" by Dra Marina Landim Alvarenga, and "Cloning and cytoplasmic insemination with bad semen" by DRA. Perla Fleury

Klaus Miesner will also be discussing the survey of horses competing in WBCYH in Verden, titled "How many of the competing horses are later active in top sport"
