OVERCOMING THE SIDE OF HORSES

I've seen a picture on Facebook of an Amazon without arms. I have been searching for more on this very special rider and his horse.

I discovered that the Amazon is called Bettina Eistel and is part of the German teamparadressage. With his horse, Fabuleax 5, she won a bronze medal and individual silver medal team in the 2008 Paralympics in Hong Kong. Fabuleax meets the voice commands,movements of heads and legs of his rider and horse is a really fabulous.

Seeing these images, and admire the strength and determination of Bettina, makes us think of how blessed we are to live alongside these animals.




Notice how Bettina uses the whip
In assembling her shower and brush your horse See how Fabuleax lowers his head to help Bettina


Overcoming only the weak can not reach!
