Spectators are being sought to attend the Paralympic dressage selection events at Hickstead (18-19 June) and Hartpury (4-8 July), in order to help create an “Olympic Games-like” atmosphere.

British Dressage (BD) put out the call to help accustom both equine and human athletes to the environment of a major international show.

BD chief executive Amanda Bond said: “It really is a case of your country needs you!

“This is a great chance to see top-class dressage – particularly for those who have missed out on tickets for the Games.”
