Don't complain for there are people far worse that have overcome incredible odds.

What an excellent role model! Awesome!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

The picture of her bridling had me tearing up.

What an amazing horse, and what a determined rider.

I have a HUGE respect for people with disabilities, who still choose (and succeed!) to do what they love. Thanks for posting, Spyder! It's very inspirational.

Wow thanks for sharing! That's really inspirational.. Makes me want to try not to take anything for granted.

That's amazing. I wonder who instructed her? Must be extremely difficult to give leg aids and hold reins with your toes at the same time What an amazing person.

Actually I remember the doc movie made about the US guy without the arms (he was born that way). It was ABSOLUTELY amazing what he could do with his legs: playing sports, walking the dog, etc. etc. etc. He was (probably is ) also happily married with perfectly normal kids.
