Once a rider has been internationally classified they receive an FEI Para Equestrian International Classification Identity Card (IPEC ID Card) describing their profile number, Grade and a list of compensating aids they are allowed to use in competition. This is the list of compensating aids I use.
Whips (Easy Cue Whip can be found http://www.equisapiens.co.uk)
Small saddle adaptation (leather handle)
Seat saver on saddle (Prolite gel)
Velcro straps from girth to stirrup (Equilibrium)
Bands (to keep feet in stirrups)
Salute with head only
I also had a more important issue....how to get on my horse at competitions! Here is an article I wrote and had published in the Spinal Injuries Scotland magazine.

I also have to have a platform to swing my legs on so that I am level with the horse, I use a small builder's platform which is the same height as Murphy. ''C'mon Murph!!''
The latest piece of equipment is to assist me in getting in to my Horsebox, it gets me in to the cab and living area,it also gets me on to my 'scaffold' (as above) and lets me mount Murphy.
