Equestrian World Class Programme funded by UK Sport


World Class Programme - For Britain's Top Riders
Team GB win silver at Blair2015

The World Class programme gives Britain's top riders expert help in fitness, nutrition, sports psychology and coaching.

The Aim of the World Class Programme

The UK Sport funded Equestrian World Class Programme supports a pathway to success for Eventing, Show Jumping, Dressage and Para-equestrian Dressage athletes.  The aim is to have in place a sustainable system that can deliver more medals on the international stage now and in the future.

The programme's mission is to: 

  • Identify talent
  • Maximise potential
  • Deliver Success

The Plan comprises three programmes: 

  • World Class Podium
  • World Class Podium Potential
  • The Equine Pathway

The programmes work closely with the three British Equestrian Federation Olympic Member Bodies; British Dressage, British Eventing and the British Show Jumping Association. Their own training and competition programmes work hand in hand with the programmes run within World Class.

The Programme has been funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, primarily from the National Lottery, via UK Sport since 1998.
