Suzi Hext - Against the Odds Ambassador
After having a life changing accident in July 2012, in which I had a spinal injury, head injury, broke my back, pelvis and damaged my shoulder. I had two years of back to back operations (8 operations), and I finally got back in the saddle just under 2yrs after my accident.
Since that day, I have never looked back.
I was classified as a Grade 2 Para rider, moved back up to Gloucestershire from my parents in Cornwall and gained my independence back.
In those two years, I have Won two National Para titles, been Long listed for the Rio Paralympics, been on a winning Nations Cup team, gained a place on the World Class programme, competed able bodied at Prix St George and I’ve won two Para Internationals.
When I had my accident, I honestly never thought I would enjoy my life again, how could I?
How wrong was I?! It’s more then I could have ever imagined, my life is well and truly back!
