  1. Tools for Change - where scientists and practitioners will come together to explore the latest research about equine training cognition and performance,
  2. Science with Impact – focusing on methods for measuring and monitoring the effects of different training approaches, use of equipment and rider psychology,
  3. Communication for Change - covering approaches to advancing equitation and performance through effective dissemination of evidence-based information, and,
  4. Education for Change – opportunities to empower existing and future generations through challenging thinking and practices and developing knowledge about equine welfare needs.

This conference aims to bring together and engage with horse riders, pony clubs and riding clubs, coaches and trainers, and equine students as well as academics, researchers and scientists to showcase how using evidence-informed approaches can advance equestrian practice and improve equine quality of life.
