title : Paralyzed Rodeo Champion Is Back in Saddle: 'My Faith In God Has Grown'
summary : While it would be easy to envision someone who rides horses competitively to become physically hurt due to the sport of barrel racing, that wasn't what caused the paralysis of one female rodeo star from Utah. Amberley Snyder overcorrected her truck on Jan. 10, 2010, was ejected, hit a fence post and ultimately was paralyzed from the waist down in the resulting accident. Since that time, her primary goal has been to determine a way to get back into the saddle of her beloved horses and sport. In the process, she's gotten back to God, too.
