Brittney has been a Mitey Rider since 2014 and during that time she has developed a close connection to her favorite mount, Leo. Since the start, Brittney has had a “take charge attitude” and manages her volunteer team and horse brilliantly. Brittney confidently steers Leo through obstacle courses and through our Sensory Trail.

This year we are especially proud of Brittney’s accomplishments as transfers herself from her wheelchair directly onto her horse with very little assistance. This is a big accomplishment and a skill that carries over into daily life, where moving in and out of wheelchair with ease is an important skill for independence.

We are grateful for Brittney’s determination, her instructor’s guidance and Leo’s contribution in developing a capable and confident young girl.

Way to go, Brittney!
