Para-Equestrian Dressage

“Para-dressage” refers to the sport’s status as “parallel” to dressage for able-bodied riders. Rebecca Hart and Annie Peavy, both members of the U.S. Para-Equestrian Dressage Team presented by Deloitte, talk about the high standards of para-dressage and how riding and competing has enhanced their lives. US Equestrian’s former director of sport programs Will Connell, who served in the British Army’s Royal Horse Artillery, discusses the sport and dressage’s basis in ancient cavalry battlefield movements.
