Paralysed event rider Claire Lomas is fronting Spinal Research’s new awareness campaign, Stand Up and Be Counted.

The campaign was launched in December and aims to get people like Claire, who was paralysed at Osberton Horse Trials in May 2007, walking again.

Stand Up and Be Counted is supported by the British Equestrian Federation and top riders including Mary King.
