British Dressage International Selector vacancies
- Written By:
Following the retirement of Jane McGarel Groves as Para Selector and Leanne Wall as U21 Selector at the end of their terms, we are now recruiting for two key selector positions, vital to the success of the British international teams.
What an incredible year it has been for our teams and individuals representing Great Britain on the international stage. A total of 13 medals were won over the course of the summer, as well as several top ten placings and personal best performances achieved at the World Championships, U21 European Championships and FEI fixtures both at home and abroad.
The future is looking bright with a great pool of talent coming through as we look ahead to Paris and beyond. There is no better time to join the team behind this success, who work collectively behind the scenes to support the selection, development, and training of our international athletes.
Following the retirement of Jane McGarel Groves as Para Selector and Leanne Wall as U21 Selector at the end of their terms, we are now recruiting for these two key selector positions. We are immensely grateful to both Jane and Leanne for their loyal support and dedication to the role – their knowledge and expertise has significantly contributed to the medal success British Dressage has enjoyed internationally in recent years.
