Natasha's story:

Natasha suffers from Transverse Myelitis, a condition that has left her with permanent nerve damage and severe weakness in her legs since contracting a virus at 14 months old. She always uses a stick, and sometimes two, to walk. At the London 2012 Paralympics, Natasha won two gold medals for Great Britain in the Paralympic dressage events. For her podium appearances at the Olympics, Natasha chose a Classic Canes' Union Flag print walking stick, commencing a relationship with Classic Canes that has culminated in her being formally appointed as a brand ambassador.  Natasha competed successfully at the Rio Paralympics in 2016 and at Tokyo in 2021.

Edward's story:

Edward is a former show jumper and jockey. In 2001, whilst working in a racing yard, he sustained a serious head and back injury in a schooling fall. He was on a life support system for several weeks and the accident resulted in him being paralysed on his right side. He was determined to ride again and is now a competitive dressage rider (Grade Two para dressage) as well as competing successfully in non-para equestrian events too.

Edward needs a stick to walk, so we are delighted to have supplied him with a wardrobe of sticks and seat sticks. As a stick user who attends a wide variety of sporting and social events, he is the ideal brand ambassador for Classic Canes and has also provided us with some very useful feedback on our products.
