Equestrian

 

Special Olympics athletes who compete in the equestrian events learn to ride, develop sports skills and gain the self-confidence to direct and control a horse. Athletes are able to compete in a variety of English and Western-style events, including relays, drill teams and Prix Caprilli (jumping events).

 

 

Special Olympics athletes also can participate in Special Olympics Unified Sports® team relays and drill teams.Unified Sports is a program that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition. During an Equestrian competition, Unified Sports team relays and drill teams would be made up of one athlete and one partner (two athletes and two partners for a four person team.

 

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level and age (equestrian athletes are not separated by gender).
