What's been the highlight for you?
Winning my gold medal. I guess it is everyone's goal but to get one was really awesome.
 
Did you get given a good horse for your equestrian events?
The horse I got was really nice. I kind of fell in love with him. He was a sweetheart and I didn’t want to leave him behind.
What do you like about horseriding?

It gives me a sense of freedom. I have cerebral palsy so I can't run very well but I can run fast on a horse.

What do you do when you are not horseriding?

There's really nothing apart from horses. I am the assistant coach at my local Riding for the Disabled.

Who’s the funniest person on the team?
Andrew Oswin from Canterbury. We call him Mother Nature because we had a team photo and he kept shouting out Mother Nature.
 
What's the best thing about the World Summer Games?
 It gives you a chance to compete and a sense of achievement and an opportunity to do something that no many other people in the world get a chance to do.
