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 Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, which must be approved by the United States Olympic 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.
