Thanks for the link! I have a college friend who has the same eye disease (not sure if that is the right word or not). He runs 5k's and recently completed a marathon with his buddy and trusty cane. I shared this link with him as well as another friend who has it too. Thanks again!

Wow. What a great story. I started tearing up as she was saying she just loves every ride because she doesn't know how many more she will get to have.

Not that I wasn't crying already when she hugged her horse and loved on him after the ride, but that really opened the floodgates.

What a wonderful pair.
