CHANG­ING THE BHA’S DE­CI­SION

Your Horse (UK) - - The Your Horse Interview -

1 US­ING A TOECAP STIR­RUP

“Be­ing pros­thetic, my foot doesn’t bend,” says Guy. “With the toecap, my foot can only come out back­wards, so it can’t get stuck.”

2 PRO­PRI­O­CEP­TION

“Pro­pri­o­cep­tion means you can close your eyes and still touch your nose be­cause you feel where it is. I showed that although I don’t have a foot I can feel my knee in the same way and I know what my lower leg is do­ing.”

3 VIDEO­ING ON THE GAL­LOPS

“I was filmed rid­ing at speed, tak­ing my foot out of the stir­rup and putting it back in again.”

Th­ese three things proved to the BHA that Guy knew ex­actly what his lower right leg was do­ing at all times.
