FEI Eventing Officials Courses Sydney

Equestrian Australia hosted a FEI Eventing Course for Judges, Technical Delegates and Course designers from 9th – 12th November, which was held alongside the Sydney International Horse Trials at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC)

Attendees representing USA, NZL and AUS, learnt a great deal from Course Directors Christina Klingspor (SWE), David O'Connor (USA) and Lars Christensson (SWE).

The Course Directors gave invaluable insights to those who attended with a fantastic mix of classroom and practical based experience. The course saw all attendees either fulfil refreshing requirements, or making the next steps for upgrades, making for a successful program. Many commenting (including the Course Directors) "it was the best FEI Eventing Officials Course they have ever attended" testament to EA and its staff's attenetion to deatil to provide a world class venue for learning.
