Paralympic hopeful finds new horse after appeal
4 June 2011 Last updated at 09:20 BST
In April Paralympic hopeful Ruth MacCarthy had a problem - she needed a horse so that she could compete for a place in the dressage team after her horse went lame.
Ruth had several offers of help but felt a special bond with Carlos, a horse owned by BBC Breakfast viewer David Marsh.
Ruth and Carlos are training near her home in Warwickshire and horse and rider are getting along famously.
