The summit was aimed at educating delegates about the fast growing and untapped Chinese equestrian industry and helping elevate the level of professional equine care in emerging countries.

During the summit, HIEC also opened a unique equestrian museum showcasing more than 60 different breeds of horses from all over the world, as well as historic carriages and art.

In recent times HIEC has set four Guinness world records, including the largest-scale equestrian dressage set in 2014. Other world records include, the club with the most horse breeds, the most times to mount and dismount from a horse within 30 seconds, and the greatest number of obstacles jumped within one minute with four horses reined by one person.
