A new program was announced by the British Equestrian Federation Tuesday to help athletes move out of youth levels to keep them in the wider equestrian sport network while a series of competitions has been launched in Germany to achieve similar goals.

The British program, funded by Sport England and focused on the three Olympic disciplines of dressage, eventing and jumping, is designed to support individual personal development, career planning and enhancement over 12 months.

The aim is to provide high caliber and ambitious athletes aged 19 to 26 for what the federation calls a “wider and well-adapted skill-set that builds their confidence for continued work to thrive and earn a living in the equine industry.” see more on dressage-news.com
