Story

On 10th August 2018 everything changed. My beautiful, courageous, 68 year old mum Alvina Shiel had a horse riding accident that has left her paralysed. We don't know how much feeling and movement will return and it's a waiting game. My mums main goal is to ride her beloved horse Troy again. I have found a company who manufacture a hoist that attaches to the horse lorry. This will hoist mum out of her wheelchair and onto Troy. It will mean she can go out to venues and hopefully compete again. This will mean the world to both Mum and Troy and will help her recovery and to maintain some normality and independence. Horse riding is mum's life and I need your help to get this galloping granny back in the saddle.

      I feel like I know your mum through Lesley and as a fellow rider understand how much Troy and riding must mean to her. I hope this small contribution helps and wish her a full recovery

      Alvina sounds like a truly determined lady who is not letting her accident define who she is. I am sure it will not be long before you reach your target, allowing your mum to ride Troy again.
