"To me, the Paralympics are the People's Olympics; not everyone can run as fast as Usain Bolt, but they can associate themselves with what Paralympians do - so what if you get a "knock back" in life, as long as you have a dream, you can go out there and achieve it."

"I am the nurses who resuscitated me after I had a heart attack and a collapsed lung as a tiny baby. I am my Dad, who caught me each time I fell off my pony as I tried to start jumping aged 9. I am the volunteers at the Riding for the Disabled Association. I am my school PE teacher who recognised me as a sportswoman. I am every horse I have ridden, every coach who has taught me and every member of my support teams over the years."
