World Class Development Programme - 2013 - 2014 is now OPEN

The application process for the World Class Development programme for 2013 / 2014 opens on 3rd February 2012. Funded by UK Sport, the programme is designed to select and support talented riders and combinations that have the perceived ability to deliver medal-winning performances on the world stage for Great Britain in the future. It underpins the World Class Performance Programme, which supports elite preparation and performance at senior international levels.

The Programme incorporates the three Olympic sports of dressage, eventing and show jumping; and the Paralympic sport of para-equestrian dressage. It has been funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, utilising Exchequer and National Lottery funds, through UK Sport since 1998.

Formal selection to the Programme takes place every two years. Riders who are eligible to ride for Great Britain & Northern Ireland, aged between 14 and 30 and who see themselves as having the exceptional talent and dedication to ride and win at Olympic level in 2016, 2020 and beyond have the opportunity to be assessed through a four stage process.

There are two written stages to the process

BOTH of which must be completed. The first phase of the written process to be considered for the 2013 / 2014 intake. Anyone wishing to apply for the Programme must complete the first stage of the process before MARCH 16th, 2012.

Age groups and selection criteria are specific to each discipline, a full Policy can be found on the BEF website

The Policy also includes relevant dates and full details of the stages of the selection process; application forms will also be available on the BEF website.
