World Class Programme Selection

The World Class Programme is supported by Lottery and Exchequer funding, via UK Sport.

World Class Performance

Membership of World Class Performance is based on past and present results, and the rider's perceived potential to contribute to team success at major championships. The squad is selected following discussions between the Discipline Selectors, World Class Performance Managers and the Equestrian Performance Director.

World Class Development (Start & Potential)

The World Class Development Programme is designed to optimise long term GBR podium success on the world stage through the identification and development of potential world class athletes and potential world class athlete/equine combinations. It underpins the World Class Performance Programme which supports elite preparation and performance at senior international levels.
