Paralympics rider appeals for new horse

Ruth MacCarthy is a dressage rider hoping to compete in the Paralympics, but her horse Whisper has gone lame, leaving her unable to challenge for a place on the British team.

She is hoping an owner of a suitable replacement will loan her a horse capable of competing at the 2012 Games.
