Giddy up! The Sport of Kings, with its Dressage competitions for equestrians with disabilities, can be enjoyed for simply freedom and fun too. Therapeutic riding has become a popular form of physical activity. To take your riding skills to the next level, Para-Equestrian events are open to athletes with visual and physical disabilities. Events are mixed and grouped based on riders' functional profiles. Riders are judged on their horsemanship skills using commands at the walk, trot and canter.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
