It only took a few seconds. Amberley Snyder glanced down at her map while driving on the freeway on a clear winter morning, but those 2 or 3 seconds changed her life. Amberley's truck drifted off the road, she overcorrected and rolled her truck. Tragically, Amberley didn't wear her seatbelt that day. She was thrown from the truck, hitting a metal pole. When she landed, she said “Everything slowed down and I couldn't feel my legs or my toes move. I knew that something was definitely wrong.”
At the hospital, she learned the devastating news: her back was broken and she was paralyzed.
Her first thought was “Whoa…this can't be. How am I going to get back on my horse and compete?”
You see, Amberley has competed for years in the barrel racing circuit. She thought that was all over.
But, while doctors told her she would never walk again, nobody said anything about riding.
Amberley made it her goal in life to get back on her horse.
And now, 7 years later (unbelievably!) she has worked her way back and she's competing again. Not only that, she is at the top of her game! She recently won $10,000 in a competition in Las Vegas!
Amberley confessed “It took a lot of work. But, I've earned my professional card and now I can compete with the best girls out there. Getting back on a horse again has taught me that anything is possible and not to give up. Now, I'm determined to walk again. To me, it's not a matter of 'if,' but 'when.'”
