The structure of the Programme will hold up to 12 core sessions delivered cross-discipline, with topics covered ranging from rider empowerment methods and approaches, communication and linguistics, creating an optimal environment to develop talented young equestrian athletes, cognitive and physical development in young athletes and supporting a young athletes' self-determination. There will also be webinars ahead of the workshops to maintain engagement and encourage pre-workshop planning and support from mentor visits to observe coaching practice.
