Laura's Photo This is me and Chip going for another blue ribbon. We were ranked #3 in total points for the '95 season in the Ohio Hunter/Jumper Association, Short Stirrup Division. I actually have three horses. Jerimiah Bullfrog is my old pony that I used to ride in the lower divisions. Chip-N-Dale, or Chip for short, is my competition pony, and It Takes Two is a new three year old that I just got to train for the future.

I was diagnosed 2 years ago at age 8. It was hard at first. I was so weak that I couldn't play select soccer as strong as I usually do, and my riding wasn't as good. But after awhile, I got stronger again and now I can do anything I want.

I feel bad from time to time, and sometimes I just don't want to take my shot! But most of the time it doesn't bother me.
