Para Olympics

Bad me... I have not posted in forever but while looking through the headlines at the The Chronicle of the Horse I read about the results from the Para Olympics.  I am so amazed by these athletes that overcome what ever their disability may be to compete at the standard they compete at.  I also was thrilled when scrolling through the pictures and I saw this one.

This is Barbara Minneci and Barilla finished eighth in the Grade II individual standings for Belgium (70.09%).  Its great to see her showing sidesaddle.  What some people don't know is that sidesaddle can be ridden by people who are missing a lower leg.  I don't know if that is her case or not but she looks beautiful!
