WHAT ARE THE PARA INTRO SHOWS?

As part of the 2013-2017 British Equestrian Federation Excel funding from the National Lottery through Sport England, British Dressage (BD) and British Equestrian Federation (BEF) have introduced a new competition series of Para-Equestrian Dressage Competitions.

This competition series has been introduce to help riders to ‘bridge the gap’ between competing at Riding for the Disabled dressage competitions and affiliated British Dressage competitions. The aim is to break down some of the perceived barriers that stop riders starting in what is now one of the best competition pathways in the World. The first steps are often the most difficult ones to take and the initiative will help riders to take those steps in to the British Dressage competition structure.

Riders do not have to be members of British Dressage to compete at these shows, but are encouraged to become British Dressage Associate member, which is free to join, as this means any results and scores achieved at these competitions will be listed on the British Dressage database.
