Selection for the World Class Programme


 Podium

Selection for the World Class Podium Programme is based on past and present results combined with the rider's potential to contribute to team success at major senior championships.

The squads are selected following discussions between the Discipline Selectors, World Class Performance Managers and the equestrian Performance Director. Athletes are reviewed on a six monthly basis, when targets, support provided and funding available are agreed.

 

Podium Potential

Selection is on a two yearly basis. It is possible that an athlete can be taken onto the Programme during the two year cycle if they are identified as excelling in their performance when measured against the programme’s minimum performance standards. Athletes can also be removed from the programme if their agreed performance targets are not being achieved.

Registration for the Podium Potential Programme will open on Monday 16 July 2018.

Please complete the form below and refer to the guidance document. All registration forms must be returned by email or by post to Georgie Wheeler.
