  • Getting back on the horse: Cancer doesn’t stop rider

    Susan Corwin learned how to be brave from riding a horse.

    Her first horse, Brandy, was a “horrible appaloosa” that was more successful throwing Susan off his back than keeping her in the saddle. The day he broke her arm, Susan said, was a watershed moment.

    “I looked up at that horse and knew that I was either going to decide to get back on him or never ride again,” Corwin said.

    She’s been riding ever since.
