National governing body (NGB)
A rider’s age will be calculated in accordance with Fédération Equestre Internationale rules i.e. the age of the rider on their birthday in the calendar year is treated as their age for the entire year. For all disciplines outlined in the document, below, the competition results must have been obtained between 1 October 2021 and 1 October 2022 (inclusive) unless specifically stated otherwise.

The Nomination Process
SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn.
You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
