Global Dressage Forum
The Global Dressage Forum is the leading public debating platform in the world of international dressage. The world’s top riders’ and trainers’ techniques are scrutinised and examined in both practical and theoretical sessions. 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.
Since October 2001 top trainers, riders, officials and serious dressage enthusiasts from around the globe meet at the annual gathering held at Academy Bartels in Hooge Mierde, the Netherlands. The Global Dressage Forum has presented unforgettable training clinics by international and Olympic champions such as Anky van Grunsven, Kyra Kyrklund, Ulla Salzgeber, Jan Brink, Johann Hinnemann, Monica and George Theodorescu, Hubertus Schmidt, Edward Gal, Nathalie zu Sayn Wittgenstein, Stephen Peters, Carl Hester and many others. By demonstrating with their own horses and pupils, this unique event allows an in-depth insight into what makes their methods so successful.
Respected judges from all over the world also convene at the Forum to evaluate and discuss international judging with riders and trainers. The intention of the Global Dressage Forum is to provide a medium through which a common dressage language and philosophy can evolve and spread globally.
Dressage is rightly proud of its traditional routes and history. While recognising the importance of classical riding, delegates at the Global Forum are invited to be open minded and are stimulated to explore ideas, not only with sport ‘insiders’ but also with sports scientists and experts from other sports.
As an independent annual global convention, the Global Dressage Forum is unique; its goal is to assist in the promotion and development of dressage worldwide.
