Blind Rider wins Blue Ribbons with horse guide
For the latest in miniature horse headlines visit: http://www.guidehorse.com/law_n_news.htm
Despite her blindness Tory competes successfully in horsemanship competitions, evidently relying on her horse to guide her:
Now, at age 38, living in Wellington with her two
beautiful sons, Tory competes at the highest amateur hunter levels.
Tory’s riding success has been so great that she was selected to
compete, yet again, at the upcoming 120th National Horse Show in
Wellington – only the top 20 or so horse and rider teams in the United
States, in each division, are invited to compete at The National. And
Tory has qualified with two of her best mounts, “See For Yourself” and
“Eye Remember Rio”.
Tory is a perfect example of a blind person who does not allow their blindness to interfere will their lifetime passions:
How does Tory approach a very large jump on a very large horse when everything is, literally, a big blur? Talent, guts, practice and reliable mounts. And Tory, since her operation, given her indefatigable sense of humor and irony, has always named her horses with an eye/vision theme.
