My feet do not touch the ground -- and the world and all the stresses that can come with being blind just disappear." Verity Smith has known her share of hurt, heartache and adversity, but it has not stopped her pursuing her dreams.
A singer/songwriter, she has starred in her own stage musical, written a book and campaigned for guide dog awareness -- but she's most at home on a horse. It's magical," the 40-year-old tells CNN's Human to Hero series.
But when fences were erected following the Acts, a new and much desired trait took the fore - the jumping horse.
Many regard Italian Federico Caprilli as the “father of modern riding”, a status he earned by revolutionising the jumping seat.
Despite the scandal, Germany still has the most wins for equestrian events in Beijing with five medals, FEI reported on Thursday.
"I see light and dark in my left eye and within that sometimes I see shadowy movement, but apart from that, not a lot." While she is a published author and has her own record deal, there is one aim she has not fulfilled -- her goal of competing as a dressage rider at the highest level.
"My dream was the London 2012 Olympics -- to compete at home, in my own country, for my country.
Caprilli’s solution was the more natural “forward seat” position. The horse made its first appearance at the Ancient Olympic Games in 680 B. when chariot racing was introduced - and was by far the most exciting and spectacular event on the programme. when the modern Games began, a few unsuccessful attempts, namely 1896,1900, 19 preceded the success of equestrian in the 1912 Olympic programme.
Over the next few decades Jumping was dominated by the military, but with the mechanisation of the ,army over the years, civilians became more and more prevalent.
The decline of the military teams also paved the way for women, who made their first Olmyipc appearance in Jumping at the 1956 Games in Stockholm, and today are as often if not more on the top spot of the podium.
