Paralympics – now ride the event with your eyes closed!

The Equestrian events test the ability of horse and rider to display both athletic prowess and supreme elegance.

Athletes with a disability have long taken part in Equestrian activities, originally as a means of rehabilitation and recreation. Para-Equestrian Dressage developed in the 1970s, with the first events held in Great Britain and Scandinavia. The multi-disability sport has since spread around the world, and athletes from more than 40 countries now compete on a regular basis.
