A year ago, when Lizzy Scott was 14, her vision started to go bad, creating blurriness and dizziness without warning. Doctors still haven't been able to figure out what is the cause behind this. As a result, Lizzy has had to go through many medical procedures in attempts to find out what the problem is. This has made it difficult for Lizzy to have a normal teenage life at times. Lizzy has found therapy in horse-back riding. She has been on a horse since she was a month old and has recently taken barrel racing lessons with her recent horse, Payroll. Her doctors have advised against it, for fear that she lose her vision while riding. But Lizzy is confident in the connection she has with her horse and that he will take care of her if her vision fails while riding. This has allowed her to compete in small division rodeos with the hopes of competing in national ones in the future. Because of her connection with her horse, her family, and the people in the horse/rodeo community, Lizzy has been able to live life how she wants, despite the uncertainty of her condition and future.
