Do you have World Class ambition?

16th Jan 2014

Are you a dressage or para-equestrian dressage rider who sees themselves as having the exceptional talent and dedication to ride and win at Olympic and Paralympic level in 2016 or 2020 and beyond?

The BEF’s World Class Programme aims to provide Britain's elite riders with the best preparation to represent Equestrian Team GBR at international level. The Development Programme focuses on the identification and development of future world class riders and horse/rider combinations. The Programme incorporates the three Olympic sports of dressage, eventing, showjumping and the Paralympic sport of para-equestrian dressage.

If you think you have what it takes, the Selection Policy and Registration Forms will be available to download from the BEF website ( at 9am on 7 February 2014.

The World Class Programme is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, primarily from the National Lottery, via UK Sport.
