WCTP Support Team

World Class Training Programme

“I am so grateful for the ongoing support I receive through the UK Sport Lottery Funded World Class Programme. The support provided for sports medicine, for both my team of horses and myself, is a huge asset which makes such a difference to me. The regular performance coaching enables me to continue to learn and develop as an elite athlete, keep focused and strive to perform at my best for Team GB at podium level.

“Without the backing from Lottery Funding, none of this would be possible and as a team we are so fortunate and grateful to be offered this type of support.” Holly Smith, British Team showjumper.

Holly is well supported by The World Class Programme, which is designed to provide a targeted approach to athletes demonstrating high potential in the equestrian Olympic and Paralympic sports, by offering the right support and environment to enable them to realise their medal winning potential.
