Paralympic hopeful finds new horse after appeal

Help

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.
