Lessons Learned from a Horse Show Mom

I have always loved animals, particularly horses, and at the age of eight my grandmother Sheena decided to pay for me to take horseback riding lessons. This began a lifelong dressage passion that would follow me into adulthood. As I began college, I took ten years off riding to get married, begin my career, and have my own children: two boys, Kade and Kyson, and a girl named Aubrey.

Persevering to Pursue Paralympic Dreams

I discovered the sport of para dressage at age 11, when I searched the internet to see if there were riders with a disability out there, and to my pleasant surprise, there were. I watched riders like Rebecca Hart and Roxanne Trunnell give their all in the ring with their horses. I had waited 17 years for a chance to chase my dream after persistently asking my parents for lessons, and I was so excited.

Cinderellas’ Gloves

0
In August 2010, Courtney Anderson lost her left hand in a ranching accident, when she was only 18 years old. While she was ponying a mare to another pasture on the ranch where she was working, the mare spooked and Courtney found her hand caught in the rope, unable to free herself. Much of her hand was damaged far too extensively to consider other options. However, six week post-op, they couldn’t keep her away, and Courtney was horseback gathering and working bulls. Needless to say, since the accident Courtney has become quite adept at thinking outside of the box to accomplish her goals.
