We never ruled our a trip to Switzerland but we are happy to announce that IGK Equestrian is going to Switzerland, well two of us are! Grant Kyle, Senior Vice President, and Ian Kyle, VP of Research and Development, were both invited to represent IGK Equestrian at the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) Headquarters. The FEI Headquarters is located in Lausanne, Switzerland. FEI establishes the rules and regulations for all events in Dressage, Jumping, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting and Reining all across the world.
The FEI orchestrates a meeting of footing manufacturers, footing experts and scientists from all around the globe involved in the international equestrian industry. The purpose of the invite is to discuss the introduction of an FEI seal of approval, for arena surfaces for Jumping. Being invited to such a prestigious meeting of the minds, along with 40 other experts in the field was truly an honor. It will be great hearing about what was discussed and accomplished at this meeting. We can’t wait to hear all about it when Ian and Grant return and of course to see pictures of the beautiful country of Switzerland!
