Since her freak accident in the highest level of eventing, Claire has found new sports including skiing, set up a business, written a book and organised fundraising events. Her life has been turned around, but it did have one similarity, she was busy again.
Claire speaks publicly about the split second that changed her life, and candidly describes the darkest times alongside the gradual process of turning her situation around, and surprisingly how the best five days of her life have all been after her devastating injury.
