A SKELMANTHORPE rider has given an inspirational performance to win a trophy in a national riding championship.
Karen Bostock suffered serious injuries in a car accident in 1987 and until last year had not sat on a horse for 20 years.
She saw an advert for a para-jumping competition and despite her serious disability has gone from strength to strength in the sport.
She has already represented Great Britain in France in a para- jumping competition.
On September 28, she and her daughter Emma received a trophy for being the highest placed pair from the Yorkshire region at the British Horse Society Cross-Country Championships held in Derbyshire.
Hundreds of British Horse Society members travelled from across the country to take part in the three championship classes – novice, pairs and open at Eland Lodge Equestrian Centre.
