Performance Analysis Could Give Riders The Edge

With the help of the UK Sports Institute (UKSI), British Olympic Association and UK Sport a 3 day workshop at Hartpury College (23-25 February) organised
by the World Class Performance Team (WCP) will present a number of new and stimulating ideas to riders, coaches and Performance Managers, that may significantly improve performance in the attempt to qualify and ultimately win medals at the Athens Olympics.

During the broader programme Scott Drawer, Performance Analyst at the UKSI, Kenny More, from the Scottish Institute of Sport (who has worked closely
with the gold medal winning British Curling Squad), and Haydn Price, the WCP Consultant Farrier will deliver a performance analysis workshop to the WCP
squads, presenting ways of tactically and technically appraising rider performance and assessing equine movement and soundness.

Members of the media are invited to join the Performance Analysis Team at 9am on Tuesday morning for their own briefing on the three ground breaking computer-based digital video analysis systems which the workshops will introduce. These three tools will give riders trainers and owners powerful feedback which they can use to improve performance. Many sports including soccer, cricket and athletics use similar systems to help athletes assess and fine tune their performances.
