Heather Young of Ottawa, Ontario never gave up on her ex-racehorse Norman, even after he lost an eye.

The 17.3-hand bay gelding ribboned for second and third-place in the 2-foot-3- Jumper competition May 25 at the Bronze Level Equine Canada Sanctioned Show, marking the end of a long, dark chapter, and the beginning of a bright future.
