One of the higlight presentations at the annual Global Dressage Forum in Hooge Mierde, The Netherlands, is the annual update from the FEI delivered by FEI Dressage Director Trond Asmyr.

This year's Global Dressage Forum remained quite tame, though, with only Canadian journalist Karen Robinson trying to extract some information and an official statement from Trond concerning the new 2016 Olympic selection criteria (which put countries in The Americas at a disadvantage). Unfortunately moderator Richard Davison avoided all controversy by referring the trouble makers to duel with Trond in the Question Corner outside the room.
