Equestrian Australia has encorporated Carriage Driving into their High Performance program for Non Olympic disciplines from 2012.
There will be four key areas within the Driving High Performance Program. They are:
1. Program Management
2. National Squads
3. Training & Development
4. World Championships
The Carriage Driving High Performance Program will be led by the National Performance Director (NPD), Boyd Exell.
National selectors have been appointed for a four year period between World Equestrian Games. Their role is to select national squads (including futures squads) and World Championship teams, and other teams as required. The chair of selectors is Judy Meredith.
A national elite and national A squad will be selected each year. Three national talent identification days will be held in Australia each year to select members to a driving futures squad.
Training and Development
The Carriage Driving High Performance Program will conduct a number of group and/or individual clinics and camps throughout the year to assist and monitor the development of national squad members.
As part of the development in achieving the main objective of the program of team and individual medals at WEG, the High Performance Program will target World Championships for single, Ppairs and four in hand.
