Introduction to adapted dressage

Friday, 20 July 2018

On 20 July 2018, a group of participants from Sports&Life Guttmann Club took part in an introduction to adapted dressage, accompanied by their families. The activity took place at the Raul Pínteño equestrian club in Girona, with the collaboration of the Royal Spanish Equestrian Federation (FEI). In addition, individual sessions with each user were led by the prestigious FEI consultant, Patricia Nadaux.

Adapted dressage or para equestrian dressage has been a Paralympic discipline since 1996. In addition to the physical benefits of practising this sport, it helps people regain personal skills such as confidence and security to face the challenge of living with a disability.
