The International Paralympic Equestrin Committee (IPEC) supports international equestrian sport for people with disabilities. Medical Classifiers determine a Grade for each competitor. The IPEC produces rule books for Dressage and Driving as well as Dressage tests suitable for all Grades. The FEI and IPEC signed a cooperation agreement in 2001.
