Hi, my name is Chrissy! I am a below the knee amputee. I absolutely love horses and horseback riding. I have found it to be very theropeutic in dealing with all my health issues. When I was three, I was diagnosed with Gauchers Disease Type 1, and in 2010, I was diagnosed with an unknown auto-immune disease. I lost my lower right leg October 25, 2013 and with Debbi's help, I was back up in the saddle within seven months. I am also a very artistic person and love combining the two (sadly for the horses) and I make all sorts of horse and rider jewelry and decorations.
