The classification system within para dressage exists so people with similar functional ability profiles are grouped into competition Grades. The Grades range from Grade Ia for the most severely impaired, to Grade IV 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.
I haven't had the chance to share here yet, but I am offiicially classified as a Gade 1b rider. This means that I can now ride in official shows where my scores would count towards qualifying/awards. It's important to remember that as a para dressage rider I'm not limited to only showing in para classes, but I can show among my peers as well.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. I couldn't have gotten this far without you all! I can't wait to see what else is in store!
