A SOUTHAM eventer has been selected for the 2013-2015 World Class Development Programme by the British Equestrian Federation (BEF).

Jodie Amos, 28, has been selected on to the UK Sport-funded Development Programme, which works with talented riders to maximise their potential and deliver success on the international stage, for the first time.

“After such a fantastic 2012 which saw our equestrian athletes perform magnificently in London at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, it is great to start 2013 with the announcement of the Development Programme which identifies our most talented up-and-coming athletes,” said Equestrian World Class Performance director Will Connell.

“The strength in depth across all four disciplines made the selection process very difficult so as a new addition to the programme I’m sure Jodie will make the most of the help and expertise available to her.”

All riders on the programme have access to the same benefits including mentoring, coaching, human and equine sports science and medicine, with the aim being to deliver more medals on the international stage.
