High Performance Programme

The purpose of the Horse Sport Ireland High Performance Programme is to provide Ireland’s Dressage and Para-Dressage athletes with the best preparation within the allocated resources to represent Team Ireland at CDI, CDIO, CPEDI and European, World and Olympic Championship level.

This programme aims to make the best athletes better, develop Dressage and Para-Dressage High Performance in Ireland. As a member of the Senior Dressage and ParaDressage High Performance Programme (HPP) the athlete will receive guidance regarding their specific individual programmes, which incorporates a team focus, coordinated by the Dressage and Para-Dressage High Performance Committee and Horse Sport Ireland.

This programme aims to improve the performance of the athlete and horse, as a combination, with the ultimate goal of securing podium finishes. Where a combination is selected for the Senior Dressage and Para-Dressage High Performance Programme, the combination will be named on the relevant HP Squad.

Please refer to the document at the bottom of this page for further information about the HPP and selection criteria. 

Any questions or queries about this programme can be directed to the Dressage and Para-Dressage Administrator, Claire Sedgeman, via email at dressage@horsesportireland.ie
