Born from the desire to create opportunities for all people with impairments to compete and achieve their goals in equestrian sport, in 2006, Para Equestrian sport joined the ranks of the other 7 disciplines regulated by the FEI. International events for both Dressage and Driving, for individuals with an impairment, were established making the FEI one of the first International Federations to govern and regulate a sport for both able-bodied athletes and athletes with impairments. The FEI hosts Para Equestrian Forums to create an opportunity for open dialogue, consultation and information sharing on Para Equestrian topics, open to all members of the Para Equestrian community.
The first Para Equestrian Forum took place in Essen (GER) in 2015, since then they have taken place each two years, in 2017 in Stow-on-the-Wold (GBR) and in 2019 in Lamotte-Beuvron (FRA). The first online Para Equestrian Forum took place in 2022.
