the backbone to Team GBR

Owners are a vital part of the team that deliver medals on the world stage. Owners are encouraged to be involved and to be part of the development of their horses and riders. Their contribution to equestrian sport should always be acknowledged, and it as at the forefront of the World Class Programme plans.

The benefits of being an owner with a World Class rider:

  • Assistance is provided through coaching, veterinary and farriery support in addition to all Championship costs for the riders and horses being met by the Programme
  • The Programme seeks to provide support to owners at all Championships in the form of information, hospitality and (where possible) accommodation
  • It is the Programme's aim that owners feel that they can have contact with Performance/Programme Managers, coaches and veterinary surgeons for advice on the progress and potential of their horses
