Para Driving Team USA
We want to send a team of 3 Para drivers, their horses and modified carriages to the 2018 FEI Para Equestrian Driving Championships this August 23, - September 2, 2018. It will be held in The Netherlands. Team USA has come home with a total of 14 medals since 1994. Many of these medals have been won with borrowed horses and carriages. We would like to even the playing field by having our athletes bring their own equipment and horses to the World Championships. It costs $20,000 to ship a horse and $10,000 to ship carriage and equipment per driver.
