The Programme incorporates the three Olympic disciplines of dressage, eventing and showjumping; 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 and the first phase of the process to be considered for the 2013 intake will open on 3rd February 2012. Anyone wishing to apply for the Programme must complete this first phase of the process before 16 March 2012.

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