What Is Equestrian?

Equestrian provides athletes with the opportunity to learn to ride a horse, develop sport skills and gain self-confidence. Events include all levels of riding experience as well as a variety of styles.

In order to participate in equestrian competition, the equestrian coach or equestrian facility must be PATHI (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) certified. For PATHI certification information, please contact the Special Olympics Illinois Director of State Championships.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in equestrian compete at the local level in a Qualifying event or in 2 sanctioned events. Athletes are then eligible to advance to the state championship at the Fall Games held in Rockford in October.
