This module will provide participants with an explanation and exploration of ‘What is LTED’ and where both athletes and coaches fit. Participants will understand that the LTED Framework defines optimal training, competition, and recovery programs based on biological age rather than chronological age, therefore based on human growth and development principles. Along with encouraging an athlete-centred approach to equestrian development, athletes with a disability will see how they can achieve success and enjoyment in the sport. There will be discussions surrounding optimal windows of trainability and training vs growth and development, training vs competition, and recommended competition to training ratios and development stages.
