International para-dressage : the CPEDI*** in Deauville

The second edition of the famous para-equestrian competition will take place from March 30 to April 1st 2012 at the Pôle International du Cheval in Deauville. Launched by Handi Equi’ Compet in 2011, this international dressage competition will soon welcome about 70 riders coming from the whole world to dispute the podium.

The CPEDI*** in Deauville will be a key-step for riders to be well prepared for the Paralympic games in London next August. It will also be the only Para-Equestrian Dressage Nations Cup event in France.
This famous para-equestrian competition has been implemented last year by Handi Equi’ Compet, a French organization created in 2007. It allows disabled riders to live their passion in competition and reach the international riding stage.

Three dressage trials have been scheduled: a team competition and an individual championship, both qualifiers for the Para-Equestrian Dressage Nations Cup, and an individual free style test.
The leaders of international Para Dressage being nowadays Denmark and Great Britain, will French riders be able to reach the top of the rankings ?
The CPEDI*** will also be a great opportunity for children to learn more about Para Dressage and be sensitized to handicap. Indeed, some classes will be welcome the 30th to attend the trials. A gala will take place during the competition, at the Pôle International du Cheval. It will be the best time for top riders to receive their Nations Cup prizes.
The French actress Véronique Jannot is the patroness of the whole event.
For the second year in succession, Cheval Savoir is an official partner of the CPEDI*** of Deauville.

Cheval Savoir also offers a high level of access in vocal synthesis for visually handicapped or blind people.
