BBC Radio Bristol has released a new video sharing the incredibly inspiring story of 18-year-old equestrian Hannah Francis and Willberry Wonder Pony, and spreading support for their cause further and wider than ever.
Hannah was first diagnosed with lung, hip, and pelvic cancer on May 1, 2015. She has not wasted a single moment since, using all her energy to fight off the insidious disease, follow her dreams, garner support for others in need, and fundraising for cancer research. She has not only become a beloved friend of many of the greatest eventers in the world, she’s inspired many of them to take up her cause or at the very least, live life to its fullest.

Lovely words from Pippa Funnel about Hannah and Willberry Wonder Pony
A number of British Equestrian businesses have come together in recent weeks to sponsor a new annual award — The Hannah Francis Award will be presented to an inspirational young eventer at the Event Horse Owners Association Dinner each year, and receive a beautiful sculpture of Hannah and Willberry Wonder Pony, created by sculptor Amy Goodman.
