Equestrian


In para-equestrian, riders compete in 11 dressage events. There are five disability categories for both the individual championship test and individual freestyle test and there is one team test. Competition is mixed gender and open to athletes with visual and physical disabilities.

Many para-equestrian athletes also compete alongside able-bodied riders in competitions. At the grassroots level, para-equestrian encompasses a number of different disciplines, while the international stream focuses only on dressage.

Riders are judged on their ability to perform various patterns, which include changes in pace and direction. Team medals are awarded to countries based on the combined scores of the team and individual tests of their designated team riders.
