World Games 2010
Para Dressage:If you want to watch history in the making, be sure to see the Para Dressage competition. Para Dressage is making its World Equestrian Games debut at the 2010 Games. The discipline showcases physically disabled riders performing at a World Championship level.
Riders are assessed by mobility, strength and coordination to establish their classification profile. Their classification profile divides them in Grades, ranging from Grade I (most impaired) to Grade IV (least impaired). Classification is necessary so the athletes are judged on their skills regardless of their disability.
Para-Dressage riders will compete in individual and team events, including the crowd pleasing Musical Freestyle.
