The BE Coaching Development Programme was initiated by the BEF world class in 2005, orchestrated by British Eventing Performance Manager, Yogi Breisner. The aim is to improve the standard of coaching within the sport of eventing. The ultimate goal is to build on Team GB’s already impressive tally of medals and to enable them to continue the winning formula well into the future at championship level.

During this time they have worked on all aspects of their coaching skills including regularly taking coaching sessions in dressage, show jumping and cross country under the watchful eye of Yogi, as well as having practical training from other trainers including Kenneth Clawson, Ian Woodhead and Lucinda Green.
