Equestrian

There are two events in equestrian at the Paralympic Games: Championship, consisting of compulsory exercises, and Freestyle, involving exercises that are choreographed to original music. Athletes with lower limb impairment perform as one with their horse, and compete for accuracy and artistic excellence. Reins and saddles are custom designed to meet the needs of various impairments, allowing athletes with severe impairment to use their remaining abilities to the fullest to perform.
