BEF Young Professionals Programme

The 12-month programme, which launched in 2017, aims is to help young riders build a wider skill-set to support their personal and career development, enabling them to thrive and earn a living in the equestrian industry and transition out of the youth development pathway.

Delivered in collaboration with British Dressage, British Eventing and British Showjumping, the Young Professionals Programme features a series of interactive workshops, with the athletes benefiting from the expertise of specialist speakers on a broad range of topics.

The workshops cover topics to include: insurance and finances, communication skills, conflict management, building your personal brand, employment law and transport legislation. 

The athletes selected onto the 2019-20 Programme are as follows: 

Dressage:

  • Natasha Adkinson, Charlotte ElliottFreya Elliott, Jessica Parsons, Rowan Bryson
