Selection Procedures

The teams that compete for the United States at major information competitions including the Paralympic Games and world championships are determined by selection procedures, generally published a year before the competition. Selection procedures for the Paralympic Games, which must be approved by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, are not yet available. 

U.S. Equestrian Federation, the National Governing Body for para-equestrian in the United States, and its affiliate the United States Para-Equestrian Association may use other methods, including invitation, to select teams to other international competitions.
