During the summit, discussions will focus on the state of endurance today and the direction participants would like it to develop in the future. Lectures and workshops will be held concerning ethics in endurance, and veterinarians will speak about research projects related to endurance riding and the use of horses in endurance.

On the last 3 days of the summit, several events will take place. On Friday, a "Mini Tri Endurance" will take place, with a 40 km endurance ride, 20 km of cycling, and 5 km of running.
