Potential Valegros are being sought for this year’s World Class Programme dressage pathway.

Besides the reassessment of horses already on the pathway, the British Equestrian Federation is inviting applications from owners wishing for their horses to be considered.

Horses will be selected on their potential to compete at championship level grand prix, and will gain access to specialist training through the UK Sport Lottery-funded programme.

The deadline for applications is 24 April. Final selection for invited applicants will take place on 20-21 May.
