Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence

The Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) has been hugely successful in developing and preparing talented young athletes (aged 16-19) who have a real chance of excelling in their sport.

From September 2013, Hartpury Equine (for dressage, para-dressage and eventing) and Haddon Training (for showjumping) will be offering selected talented riders the chance to progress their skills whilst learning how to manage all aspects of life in a professional sport, as well as the chance to continue their education.

What is AASE?

The AASE Programme is designed to meet the needs of young people, aged between 16 and 19 who have the potential to achieve excellence in their sport while pursuing an education at the same time.

Who is eligible?

The scheme will be offered across the four Olympic disciplines: Dressage, Eventing, Showjumping and Para-Dressage.

Riders must have 5 GCSE grades at C or above. This is a minimum requirement to be considered for selection. You will also have to meet specific criteria set by either British Eventing, British Showjumping or British Dressage, depending on your discipline.
