The competitor’s mobility, strength and coordination are assessed in order to establish their Classification Profile. People with similar functional ability Profiles are grouped into competition Grades. For Para Dressage the Grades range from Grade I for the most severely impaired, to Grade V for the least impaired. For Para driving the Grades range from Grade I for the most severely impaired, to Grade II for the least impaired. The competition within each Grade can therefore be judged on the skill of the individual competitor on their horse, regardless of the competitor’s impairment.
