"My game is not a sport. It's the game of life. I have an autoimmune disease called myositis. My treatment includes oral prednisone and monthly infusions of IVIG. When I first got sick almost 20 years ago I was 44. I was an elementary school teacher but had to leave due to extreme weakness in my arms and legs. I could barely walk or bathe myself. I refused to just give in to the disease and view my life as over. "

" Leading up to my surgery in January 2014, my riding had been compromised by increasing hip pain and weakness. It became difficult to dismount after riding and increasingly precarious to start off. I had to give up riding any difficult horses all together. I was weak and in pain and unable to cope with any fractious behavior. Three months after surgery I was riding again, and six months later I was in the show ring again. Now, a year later, I feel stronger and more secure than ever."
