December 10, 2010–The Eventing High Performance Training Lists have been revised for the 2011 season. These riders will be invited to participate in training sessions this winter with Capt. Mark Phillips. The Eventing Selectors and High Performance Committee revised the approach to the training lists with the objective of being successful at the 2012 London Olympic Games. It is anticipated the new structure will allow more focus on the riders themselves, and allow more exposure for some of the talented young horses coming up through the levels.
A listed riders will receive training grants from the USEF and priority during training sessions. Capt. Phillips will continue to arrange personal training with the A listed riders at their own farms throughout the season.
B listed riders may also be awarded training grants and invited to training sessions.
