Hello, Welcome to Get Claire walking

Claire Lomas, an extremely talented event rider, who has produced horses and competed at 4* level, had a freak accident while competing at Osberton Horse Trials in May 2007.

She collided with a tree which resulted in fractures to her neck, back and ribs. She suffered a punctured lung, pneumonia, had to have a tracheotomy to help her breathe and was in intensive care for 10 days.

The fracture in her back caused damage to Claire's spinal cord resulting in her being transferred to the Northern General Hospital's Spinal Injuries Unit. Claire left Sheffield after 8 weeks - the shortest time anyone has ever spent in that hospital with her type of injury. Claire is still paralysed but determined to get better.

Claire has spent hours working on her rehab with a fantastic team of physiotherapists and has set up a gym at home. She is making good progress, and this would not be possible without the tremendous support she has. She is not going to give up the fight to walk again, her biggest challenge!
