The National Board accepted the recommendation from the National Sports Advisory Group, that equestrian is removed from the 2022 National Games.
This decision was based upon input from teams willing to attend the Games in the planned format. Unfortunately, this format of equestrian would not have created meaningful competition for athletes.
We remain committed to supporting equestrian athletes on their pathway to the World Games. We will support organisation of an invitational event for equestrian athletes to qualify for 2023 Special Olympics World Games in Berlin.
More information will be provided to equestrian athletes and teams as the details of this invitational event are finalised.
