A Northamptonshire man is appealing for help to coach his wife to ride again after she broke her neck.

Elaine Harper, aged 54, broke her neck falling down the stairs at her Kislingbury home last November.

Although she was not paralysed, her recovery has been slow and the keen horse rider has not had the confidence to climb back into the saddle since.

Husband of 35 years, Paul, said: “She would be out on a horse three or four times a week but that is gone from her life now.

“She has had to give up her work, as I have, and it would mean the world to her to do something she loves again.

“I would love to find someone who can help give her that back.”

The Harpers own two horses and have all the tack, they only require someone to train her to ride again. If you can help, email or leave a message on the Chron’s Facebook or Twitter feeds.
