The application process for tickets to watch Britain’s para dressage riders in action at London 2012 opens today.

With less than a year to go until the start of the Paralympic Games (29 August-9 September) the full schedule has been unveiled, with 11 days of competition and more than 300 sessions across 20 sports in 20 venues.

Applications for tickets will be open from today (9 September) until 26 September.

The para dressage will run from 30 August-4 September 2012, with tickets costing £10, concessions £5, and each applicant can apply for up to 30 tickets.

All tickets come with a London travel card and there will be “day passes” enabling ticket holders to see several sports on the same day.

Tim Hollingsworth of the British Paralympic Association said: “Knowing the schedule is out makes it all the more real.

“We are working hard to make the last 369 days count as everyone is determined to produce their lifetime best performances on home soil.

“We hope that people will plan their trip to get behind the Paralympic GB team and cheer us on.”

As with Olympic Games tickets, if sessions are oversubscribed, tickets will be allocated via a ballot.
