Inspired by the success of National Paralympic Day earlier this year, Hoof, the British Equestrian Federation’s participation programme, is bringing several para sports together to give even more people the chance to see and try a range of disability sports at the first ever Para Sport Event 2015.

Hosted at Moulton College in Northamptonshire, the free regional event will celebrate the disability sports on offer and also introduce people to para sports by giving them the opportunity to find out more and try some out for themselves.
