The Champion Horse Rider With Dwarfism | BORN DIFFERENT

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:
A TEENAGER who was born with dwarfism is fulfilling her dream of becoming a professional horse rider and says it has helped her accept her disability. Megan Gregory, from Croydon, was born with Achondroplasia - a type of dwarfism that affects the growth of arms and other long bones. In addition to this, Megan has a frontal bossing on the top of her head and ‘trident' hands, meaning they all measure to the same size.The 19-year-old spent her school years being bullied but after taking up horse riding and started to compete two years ago, she has new-found confidence. Megan lives a normal life despite her disability, admitting she has “always liked a challenge”.

  • in my opinion she is a terrible rider. She doesn't deserve first place just because she has dwarfism. She pulls on the reigns way too much

  • No offense to English saddle riders but I hate the English industry. But you were another level you wouldn’t loosen the horses but try that and the horse won’t have a attitude

  • Yes, it is a great thing that someone like her has the guts to ride! But honestly, she still needs to learn it right! She is pulling in the reins to hard, is hitting the horse WAY too hard for no reason, and at 3:49 she makes it fall off the transporter, which is extremely dangerous for the horses legs...

  • The only thing that is annoying me is the fact she uses a bit and whips her horses.

    Farm LifeFarm LifeIl y a 5 jours
  • I love her but she needs to ease up on the bit a little, learn how to balance herself more in the saddle rather than rely on the reins. It might take a little longer for her because of her body composition, but I think she can get the hang of it :) I only worry about riding the reins because not only is it uncomfortable for the horse but it also makes them moody and she has more of a chance of getting thrown off. Constructive criticism. I love what she's doing, nothing is more healing than spending time with a horse.

  • It's great that she is doing this considering her disadvantages but I just have a few issues with her riding. While I understand that she may need the whip to get the horse moving due to the shortness of her legs, a whip with a soft flap would be better rather than what basically amounts to a hard wooden baton, and only to be used with little force. A light brush on the flank is all that should be required to get her horse moving. The other thing is the bit. A normal eggbut is bad enough, but the bit in that horses mouth was quite a harsh one. A (non-mechanical) hackamore would be best. The horse should not have been foaming or opening her mouth to escape the pain.

  • Chapeau she does what she wants, but she needs an other saddle. And the horse... It is a little bit too fat and look at its back e.g. 4:27. Doesn't look healthy...

  • I support her but she can’t keep ripping the horse’s face off when she’s trying to balance from the reins. There is no excuse to hurt or abuse any animal. Doesn’t matter if you’re small or anything, there is no excuse.
