BE Course Design Scholars announced

Following an interview day on Wednesday 18th October with A List BE Course Designer Capt. Mark Phillips, BE President Jane Holderness-Roddam and BE Board Director and Chairman of the Sport Committee Les Smith, British Eventing are delighted to announce the successful applicants of the 2017 BE Course Design Scholarship.

BE Accredited Coach and B List Course Designer Andrew Heffernan and Gold List Course Builder Guy Herbert have both been accepted onto the scholarship which will support them over the next two years. The BE scholarship includes tailored guidance from experienced Course Design Mentors, exclusive access to training sessions and course walks along with the chance to assist with the design of BE courses under the support of a Course Design Mentor.

From all who applied five candidates were short-listed and after a difficult decision panellist Les Smith said: “It was a very enlightening day, and I am sure all the candidates took a lot away from it,” all the panel thanked those who attended and for their input in the day.

The main aim of this two year scholarship is to guide and support talented course designers, whatever level they are in course design, in order to give them the best possible chance to reach the top level of course design in the sport; the scholarship is made possible using funding from the Bill Thomson Bursary.
