The World Class Start And Potential Programme Secures Funding To March 2005

The British Equestrian Federation¹s World Class Start and Potential (WCS&P) programme has secured funding at its existing levels for the four equestrian Olympic disciplines ­ Dressage, Paralympic Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing until March 2005.

The World Class Start and Potential programme is for riders between the ages of 14 and 30 who demonstrate the exceptional talent and dedication to ride and win at Olympic level in 2008 and 2012. Riders on the programme are selected after a 2-day riding assessment and an interview by a panel of experts.

Vikki Kind, World Class Start and Potential Manager said:

³I am delighted that World Class Start & Potential has been fortunate to secure funding until March 2005, I believe this is primarily due to the great depth of talented and dedicated young British riders in all the disciplines, and also to their hard work and commitment to move one step closer to their ultimate goal of riding at Olympic level².

The 2003 World Class Start and Potential riders have had a fantastic year with a number of prestigious wins Nationally and Internationally and look set to progress to the next level of their careers. Sarah Cutteridge who was on this year¹s World Class Potential eventing squad has since been chosen for Great Britain¹s 2004 World Class Performance Athens squad.
