I was reading a write up on Facebook back in December and was blown away by what I was reading. It was a story about a young lady that was deaf and mute. She was riding a horse in a competition without a saddle or bridle. The story said that she had a special connection with horses because of her disabilities. I went on to read that she was training this particular horse for only 21 days before this competition and that made the story even more amazing. I watched the attached video and was blown away. The next morning I got my kids up and had them gather around my computer and watch this amazing overcomer.
I later got on youtube and wanted to see if there were anymore videos about this lady. To my surprise there was a video of this lady on a TV talk show and she was not deaf or mute. She said in the interview that she had at least 800+ hrs on that horse training it to ride like that without a bridle. I was blown away. Everything that I thought was true just got spun on me.
I wonder how many times this happens now days? I know Facebook is well known for untrue stories to be posted. It’s almost like people dont have to source their info anymore. Many people will put stuff out online and there is very little to no truth to it at all. Its very sad because most people will believe it if they read it online wether it is true or not.
Click here to see the video. This link is to her blog and tells her response to the false claims. Very interesting. Hope this makes you think about the info you read online next time before you believe it first.
Dont fall into the trap of believing untruth.
