U18 Rider Training

U18 rider 1

Some of the objectives of the British Eventing Charitable Foundation (BECF) are:

  • To encourage people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to participate in the sport of Eventing
  • To develop and nurture the under 18 age group in the Sport of Eventing through the U18 Program, improving rider safety, knowledge of horse welfare, sportsmanship and teamwork

The U18 Program pays particular attention to young riders through a series of regional networks supported by voluntary coordinators. The Program ensures that these riders are supported and educated in the sport, both from the competition and training and education perspective.  Their riding skills and horse welfare knowledge are improved and they also receive support and encouragement during competitions. A regional competition is also organised which allows these riders to develop their team working skills.
