I saw this video of paraplegic Timo Ameruoso floating around FB, but I wanted to know more… So, I googled him and found this article.
Timo suffered a motorcycle accident in his teens after he has already achieved success as a show jumper.
Timo was lost after the accident… but found himself again through this patient and saintly Haflinger-Connemara mix stallion, Paolo. I cannot even imagine the trust between these two. Could you, with all your limbs working, get on a sitting down horse and have them get up? Probably… but imagine if your legs didn’t work?! Probably not.
So wonderful to see such a trust!
Here is the video. Below is a translated story that I found.
