"Moscow Riding Club for the Disabled"
This kind of equestrian sport is available to people with a wide range of disabilities. An athlete takes part in one of the five levels of the competition depending on the degree of functional disorders.
Para-Equestrian dressage began in Scandinavia and the UK in the seventies of the last century. In 1987, Sweden was the first to conduct the World Cup held in this sport. In 1991, the International Paralympic Committee requested the International Paralympic Equestrian Committee (better known by the abbreviation IPEC) to develop and promote Para-Equestrian dressage worldwide.
At the Paralympic Games in Atlanta in 1996 athletes competed in Para-Equestian dressage for the first time. By 2005 already 38 countries of the five continents were members of the IPEC. In 2006 Paralympic equestrian sport became the eighth of the Equestrian Sports FEI, and IPEC was renamed FEI PE - office of the FEI Para-Equestrian.
Para-Equestrian dressage competitions are conducted in accordance with the Charter of the FEI, the General Regulations FEI, Veterinary Regulations FEI, Rules of Para-Equestrian Dressage FEI, the General Rules of the Paralympic Equestrian FEI, the Rules for Para-Equestrian competition and other rules and guidelines, regularly reprinted by the FEI.
