This is the inspiring moment an equestrian got back into the saddle for the first time after having three of her limbs AMPUTATED.

Jessica Thoma, 25, was forced to have both legs amputated below the knee and her left arm amputated below the elbow after she developed an autoimmune disorder.

The team lead had developed polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), a condition which causes the inflammation of the body’s arteries, preventing them passing oxygen to organ systems.
