The French equestrian federation has announced the team that will represent France at the 2022 World Para Dressage Championships in Herning, Denmark on 6 - 14 August 2022.

The French para riders will be captained by chef d'equipe Fanny Delaval.

"We had a good training and selection camp in Saumur in July. This gave up the ability to select the team for the Worlds," said Delaval. "We chose four combinations according to different criteria based on the two tests performed in the training camp, the progress they made in the freestyle, and the vet check as well as the current form of the horses. We also looked at the involvement and commitment during the season and at CPEDI's, the involvement of the personal trainers, the relationships with the federation and staff as well as the team spirit and mental preparation."
