This is one of the most inspirational and heartwarming things we’ve ever seen. Lauren Barwick is a Canadian Paralympic equestrian who has made quite a name for herself in the dressage world. Though she is paraplegic, Lauren has reached soaring heights as a rider, representing Canada at three Paralympic Games to date.
Lauren was paralyzed when 75 kg of hay fell on her while working at a ranch in 2000. She broke her back in the fall, but was learning how to ride again as soon as she was able to. Now, she’s the current number one ranked par-equestrian rider in the world.
Lauren recently performed a demo with her Oldenburg mare, Off to Paris. Watch this and prepare for goosebumps:
