The Dutch equestrian federation has named the Paralympic long listed combinations that are in the running for the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games. 

Dutch team captain Joyce Heuitink-van Rooijen drafted the long-list from which the team will be picked. 

"I'm already looking forward to the Paralympics in Paris," Joyce commented. "We're facing a nice season with three observation competitions with the riders I have long-listed.
