One Armed Forces veteran who has quickly arrived on the scene of the para-equestrian discipline of dressage is U.S. Air Force Veteran Derrick Perkins of Sugar Land, Texas. Perkins was injured in 1988 while on active duty resulting in a significant loss of use of all four extremities. After rehabilitation he was classified as having C7 Asia D Tetraplegia. Perkins is actively involved in several organizations including Paralyzed Veterans of America, TX Chapter, Air Force Wounded Warrior, USEF, USDF, and U.S. Equestrian Team. He is eligible for international competition as a 1A classification, allowing him a chance to represent the United States in the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and the 2016 Paralympic Games under the coaching instruction of Kai Handt.
