Seventeen-year-old Angel Dancy-Brock has seen her confidence blossom thanks to an Accessibility Mark riding school.
Angel has a visual impairment that means she only has approximately 25 percent vision in her left eye with no vision at all in her right eye. This causes Angel to feel unsettled and anxious in unfamiliar surroundings.
In addition to her visual impairment Angel also has a multitude of hormone deficiencies, which requires lots of medication, as well as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, meaning she needs constant supervision.
As a result of her complex conditions, Angel struggles with social interaction and can find it difficult to interpret people’s body language or feelings.
