I wanted to share my story with you, I am a 25 year old girl, who loves riding and has been riding since i was literally a baby! Got my first shetland pony and the age of 4 and have never been without a horse, I was always very keen to compete, local shows, hunter trials, dressage etc untill I came of my horse 'Scrumpy' and fractured my pelvis, I was layed up for 8 weeks, and back in the saddle within 8 months, I had to buid up my confidence again, Then in 2010 i tripped and fell over fracturing my lumbar vertebraes, had to had spinal surgey physio...you name it i did it! 16 months later I am back riding again, today 16/09/11 I popped over my first showjump for a very long time....It feels fabulous!
Here is me enjoying a lovely ride on harlyn beach in Cornwall!! After getting over all of this, and still wanting to ride, it must be in my blood!!
