Taelor Cambre

post-title

Mid-South Amateur Equestrian and Barrel Racer with Cerebral Palsy. Cambre actively rides and competes with Panther Creek Stables in Nesbit, Miss.

How many years have you been riding/ been working with horses?
I’ve been consistently taking lessons, and serving as a working student for Panther Creek Stables in Nesbit, Mississippi for 3 years now.

Describe your personal goals and overall hope and vision for the Equestrian Community in terms of expanding and sharing horses and equestrian sports with individuals from all walks of life:
My goal and vision is to help people understand the impact horses can have on our mental, and physical health, while also providing people with the perspective of what it’s like to compete in equine sports with a disability like Cerebral Palsy.

How do you feel equestrian sports can better diversify our equestrian communities?
Encourage your disabled friends who want to ride horses, don’t limit them out of fear they will get hurt. Let them decide what they are capable of. I wouldn’t be where I am now without my instructor who never questions my abilities due to my disability. I want that to be the experience of all people with disabilities in the equine community.

What are ways you/ your organization have successfully introduced horses to new individuals in our community?
I have been able to show many different people on social media that horses can majorly improve someone’s well-being through documenting my own progress in my riding ability, and how it has improved my health and fitness.
