Inspiring Girl Used Horseback Riding To Heal A Severe Brain Injury (VIDEO)

Two years ago, a student named Talbot was hit by a car while she was crossing the street. She survived, but she was unable to walk or speak due to a severe brain injury. Now, she's made a truly remarkable recovery -- and according to her mother, it had everything to do with an unlikely extra-curricular activity: horseback riding.

Now, the young woman is at one of the highest skill-levels for riding at her facility (run by "Pegasus," an organization that uses horseback riding for recovery).

"It's incredible, where she was then, in 2011, and where she is now," Talbot's mom said.
