Olympic and Paralympic competition has worked its way into the global consciousness as the epitome of sporting excellence. To qualify to take part, each athlete must have already proven to be nothing short of outstanding in their discipline and it is this elite group of athletes, competing under the flags of their respective nations, who go above and beyond in the pursuit of victory.
As Equestrian sport begins its second century in the Olympics, the three foundation sports of the FEI, Dressage, Eventing and Jumping and the relatively new addition of Para-Equestrian Dressage remain unique on the Olympian stage as they are the only disciplines that combine the athleticism of both human and animal.
In the pages of this microsite we pay tribute to all of those whom over the last 100 years have worked tirelessly both on and off the field at evolving Equestrian Sport at the Olympics and Paralympics into the success they are today and with each new record and innovation that legacy continues. These sporting summaries, highlights, photographs and results are testimony to the achievements of those who have paved the way for those who are yet to come.
