BEF Excel Talent Programme

What is the BEF England Excel Talent Programme?

Supported by Sport England, the BEF England Excel Talent Programme seeks to identify, support and develop riders and horses that demonstrate talent and potential in the Olympic (dressage, eventing and Showjumping) and Paralympic (para-equestrian dressage) disciplines. The programme has been developed to extend the rider talent pathway below the UK Sport funded World Class Programme and to help support riders to go on to achieve their potential. 

The two year programme provides selected riders with the opportunity to have access to top equestrian specialists including: International coaches, physiotherapists, psychologists, farriers, saddlers, vets and nutritionists via a series of rider performance camps. Riders are expected to attend up to three 2 day training camps each year plus other one day events. 

Applications

Applications are currently closed; if you would like further information about the Programme please contact Georgie WheelerGeorgie.Wheeler@bef.co.uk / 02476 698904
