PE Studies TEE Elective commenced in 2008 and was offered again in 2009 and with the practical component for the three disciplines of Dressage, Eventing and Showjumping.

If these sports are approved by this Examination Panel - candidates /students must prepare and submit a video portfolio that demonstrates their skills, drills and performances in their sport - candidates need to contact PE staff at their school for details
4. Equestrian sports included - Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing

An exciting Program aimed at developing talented young riders in all aspects of equestrian riding and horse management following EWA pathways to elite athlete performance. The squad has been in existence since 1994, being continuously sponsored by Healthway and from 2007 has been very proud to have Prestige Loans as a major sponsor.
This year enrolment in NCAS Courses at Introductory Level for both Riding Skills and Horse Management became mandatory and remain the foundation of horse management and ridden components within the BEATS Program.
Following the submission of applications, the coaching panel will review applications and invite a selection of
suitable candidates to a mounted assessment day held at the State Equestrian Centre. The mounted assessments
will be divided by sport. Each group will be observed by one member of each State Selection Panel for the High Performance Pathways, and coached by a current BEATS Coach. Following the assessment, the coaching panel & selectors will be to decide the final selections. In addition to the mounted assessment, the rider will be asked to sit down to a 10 minute interview, also held on the assessment day.
