Canadian equestrian Karen Brain is determined to compete in the Olympics. Soon jumping over obstacles becomes her specialty—literally and figuratively. Then, one day, she falls. Her spine is shattered, and her doctors tell her she might never walk again, much less ride a horse. But obstacles are this rider’s specialty. Follow her challenging but ultimately triumphant course from hospital bed to Paralympic medal podium.
