My wife was diagosed with Lupus in 1994, she worked untill 2006 she suffers with joint pains and has had operations on both hip joints, three discs in her back have collapsed & others are on their way too, surgens say nothing can be done to help this. the skin on her feet peel till they bleed, she suffers chronic fatige, chronic bouts of depression which were and still are big issue.
She was registered dissabled & recieved DLA in 2009 & I became her carer. Then we discovered RDA (riding for dissabled) which was great she was a new person, mentaly anyway so much so she started having exrta lessons & I volenteered for a local RDA group. In 2010 we were given the RDA horse that she was having her lessons on after the owner passed away, we found a livery yard local to us to keep our horse all was well tll April/May 2012 when sombody reported my wife for not being dissabled because she rides a horse since then we've has been treated like criminals with interview after interview calling us liars we've been nothing but straight & truthfull with them but they twist everything you say to them they have even been to the person who runs the stables to get a statement so after 10 months of keeping us hanging on they have suspended all our benifts without warning so here we are no money & I now know what LTB stands for in the eyes of the goverment you are guilty regardless !!
