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.
