Why Do I Race With A Prosthetic?
Hey everyone, I'm Bridget! When I was ten years old I was riding my horse to a friend's house and a car drove over the hill and struck my horse and I. My left leg was amputated above the knee at the scene, and my horse did not make it. My accident was tragic, and growing up with a prosthetic wasn't easy at times, but I truly believe everything happens for a reason. I was blessed with a new horse who taught me how to ride again, and today I am a competitive barrel racer. I hope my story can inspire you to never give up on what you love!
