    Default Paraequestrian to be featured on GMA!

    Paraequestrian Rebecca Hart is slated to appear Wednesday morning on Good Morning America, with her horse in Times Square, as a segment on riding as therapy & competition being hosted by GMA guest host Ann Romney, who has MS.
    Sure, it's a nice piece for a potential First Lady on the campaign trail, but it's also great exposure for paraequestrian.

    I saw it this morning. The horse seemed very good natured about all the fuss.

    It was right around 90 minutes into the show, if anyone is trying to find it.

    Here's the clip of the segment.
    I thought Becca represented herself and paraequestrian beautifully in the short time alloted to do so.
    I'm worried the horse may have slipped into a sugar coma during the commercial break after all the sugar he was fed on camera, but he was a star in all the commotion of Times Square!
    The only thing I can't figure out was the "Special Friends for Kids" at the bottom of the screen. Was that supposed to be for another segment, or is Becca still considered a "kid" at 28?!
