‘I’m legally blind’

Your Horse (UK) - - #HACK1000MILES -

Aus­tralian chal­lenger Candy Ch­ester has al­ready smashed the 100 miles marker on her Ara­bian mare Miss ZZ, all the more im­pres­sive when you con­sider that she is reg­is­tered blind. “I can’t see the ground or my horses ears,” says Candy, who lives in Vic­to­ria. “Once in trot, I can’t see at all. I love can­ter­ing through the bush fol­low­ing the sounds of my guide rider Mat and his trusty trot­ter River. “We’ve had a lot of ad­ven­tures so far, dis­cov­er­ing new trails in the mighty Red Gum forests where we live. “Achiev­ing 100 miles has been spe­cial; my dream is to com­pete in en­durance.”
