Amberley Snyder – Get Back on the Horse
Keynote Presentation

Enjoy this engaging presentation by guest speaker Amberley Snyder.

Get Back on the Horse

Fighting back from a tragedy that left her paralyzed from the waist down, Amberley is now inspiring thousands across North America by telling her inspirational story and competing in rodeos across Canada and the United States.  She has let the challenges she faces refine her, not define her.

In addition to being voted the fan favourite contestant at the world’s richest one-day rodeo (the rodeo comparable to the Super Bowl), she has competed with the best in the industry and has won over both her fans and the hearts of North America. She has turned her tragedy into triumph and inspires all of us to “Get Back on the Horse.”
