They really made me feel very humble and had me watching events that normally I wouldn't have been interested in, but were compelling watching when the competitors were missing a limb, sometimes two, had vision impairments or other obstacles to overcome. I won't call them 'disabilities' because truly these athletes showed their abilities and inspired us with their courage, focus and determination and can do attitude.
Congratulations to them all, whether they won a medal or not, they were a real inspiration.
I thought you might like this 'behind the scenes' video of some of the 2016 Paralympic riders and their horses. (I love the appaloosa (the spotty one) unusual colouring for a dressage horse.)
