The England Excel Talent Programme aims to produce a pool of up and coming talented riders across the England Regions who are not currently on the BEF's World Class Programme.
The Programme has been set up through funding from Sport England and is being co-ordinated by the BEF, in partnership with the three Olympic and one Paralympic disciplines of eventing, dressage, showjumping and para-equestrian dressage.
The Programme, will provide selected riders with the opportunity to have access to top equestrian specialists including: coaches, physiotherapists, psychologists, vets and nutritionists via a series of rider performance camps.
The programme runs on a 2 year cycle and details of the 2011-2013 applications are below: Selection Timetable

. The BEF Excel Talent Programme applications are now closed. The next round of applications will open July 2013.Rider Age Groups
A rider's age will be based on F.E.I. ruling which is the age the rider becomes in a given year. The calendar age is taken from the beginning of a calendar year that a rider's age is reached until the end of a calendar year that a rider's age is reached.
For example; a rider who is 15 years may apply for the 16 - 18 year old category if they have their 16th birthday in 2011. This ruling then applies to all age groups. 2011 - 2013 Squads
