Krissie Beccaris lives with a spinal cord injury caused by a motor vehicle accident in 2016.

Krissie's passion is her horses and before her injury, worked as a horse trainer. Incredibly, Krissie was riding again within one year of her injury.

As riding again was one of her goals, the LSA assisted through the provision of a vaulting saddle which helps her to mount and ride a horse independently.

In Krissie's words:

"The only thing I wanted to do was to have a set of legs that worked – that would be my horses. All I wanted to do is get on and ride."

"Four months after my accident I went to a friend’s house who had a little pony, so I jumped on that."

"If I didn't have a Service Planner from LSA, I would be pulling my hair out – I've never been one to do paperwork. They mean the world to me, because they have made my world possible."
