Compensating Aid for Para Dressage 

  • In most federations, assessment is made on an individual basis. Please contact your equestrian federation for details.
  • USEF: Magnetic stirrups are generally permitted (according to USEF 2020 Rulebook, Chapter DR308 7e (p. 521)). But since the stirrup has an open side, it would more than likely be reviewed by the classifiers or the USEF Adaptive Sports Committee to ensure safety on an individual basis. 

Please help us extent this list. If you have gotten approval from your local federation, get in touch via our chatbot in the lower right corner.
