Youth Development & Performance Pathway Handbook

British Equestrian has launched the first edition of its Youth Development & Performance Pathway Handbook, which focuses on the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines of dressage, para dressage, eventing and showjumping.

The 120-page handbook outlines the various stages that an aspiring rider  might go through as they progress through their chosen discipline, starting at entry level and progressing through the various development stages  up to being an athlete at the upper levels of the World Class Programme. The narrative is broken down into three sections – the journey into the sport, the journey onto the performance pathway and the journey onto the podium – and each provides clear guidance to riders who are working towards or taking their first steps into this stage of their equestrian career. It is also highlights how sport can be a great way to acquire transferable skills, especially for those that keep riding as their leisure sport.
