Hi all.

An update on my daughter (lost left leg 2 years ago) and her new horse.

Today they did their first dressage test (Intro B).

First dressage test for both of them.
First outing for horse and first time ridden on grass. They were brilliant :)

Some photos:


Warming up



Afterwards :)



No photos of test but have a video which I will post once it is uploaded on Youtube.

Very very proud of her and her boy.

Well done to all, what a very brave young woman she is. I think you are a pretty brave Mum too for encouraging her.

Thanks for the lovely comments which I will pass on to her. :)

She is buzzing. It is lovely to see her doing so well after such a horrendous accident. She has lots of determination and a very positive approach to life.

Wizz, she has a prosthetic leg which is for walking and is okay fro riding but she hopes to get a specialised one.

She is wearing Ariat Volante boots - the only ones she can get her prosthetic foot into.

Huge well done to her! A good friend of mine only has one leg, you'd never know and she's a better rider than a lot of people I know!
