Living with a brain injury can mean even basic thoughts and everyday actions are difficult. Their impact can be life-changing, far-reaching and affect more than just one person. That’s why we’re here – to help people with a brain injury and their whānau and friends find new pathways to achieve independence, inclusion and quality of life.
What is a brain injury
Brain injury is often the result of external force to the head and can affect a person’s cognitive, behavioural, emotional and physical abilities. Effects can be temporary or permanent and vary in their level of seriousness.

If you put in the work, it will pay off
Before my injury, I usually had up to four horses in full competition work, was studying at ARA to become an Architectural Technician and was doing some hours teaching every week (including kids from the pony club and some local adults on their horses too).

Take everyday as it comes
I enjoy racing motocross and downhill mountain biking at the Christchurch Adventure Park and Victoria Park. We used to go two to three times a week.
