What is High Performance?
High-performance, in the context of this BCEA committee and its goals, is defined as:
- Rider has completed a minimum of 3 Preliminary HT with MER and has declared they are aiming for minimum FEI CCI2-S or Intermediate horse trials; or
- Currently competing at a minimum of either Intermediate horse trials or FEI CCI2-S; or
- Rider has previously competed at minimum FEI CCI2-L or Intermediate horse trials and is bringing along a horse going at least Training level.
There is no age-limit to the high-performance definition, other than the minimum ages required by the rules to compete at each level, as young and adult riders alike can benefit from education opportunities.
