Lauren Barwick is a Canadian woman with a difficult history behind her but also full of hope and love for life. When she was only a child, she began to show a particular fondness for horses, and dreamed of working one day with these beautiful animals. In fact it was: growing up, Lauren became a promising trainer, and everyone - she understood - was convinced that this would be her way. But fate reserved her for something different.
One day, in fact, when she was little more than a girl, a bale of 90 kg hay fell on her, breaking her back and leaving her paralyzed instantly. Imagine what it might mean, for a girl used to living in the open air with animals, the idea of facing such a fate. Yet Lauren decided not to give up.
After a long process of physical and mental rehabilitation and training, Lauren was able to continue on her way, becoming a professional jockey and trainer. He moves in a wheelchair, but this does not prevent her from communicating with her horse and performing all the numbers she wants to perform.
In this video you will see her communicate with her beautiful animal, which follows her directions to the letter, staging all the typical exercises of the dressage discipline. Shortly thereafter, Lauren climbs into the saddle and the two start galloping: the woman and the beautiful horse move in unison, and in a few seconds the disability becomes only a memory.
