Equestrian Student Recovering From Brain Injury, Hopes to Ride Again


(Billings Gazette) – Liz Romine knows this is all real. The horse bucked her and rolled on her before it staggered away and died. Romine landed in the intensive care unit with a traumatic brain injury. At times, she struggled to sit up and walk, her feet unresponsive.

But her recovery has advanced quickly, she can now walk unassisted, and she is now aware of her mother’s presence, and the visits from family and friends. Now the blankness of traumatic brain injury has receded, leaving a fog in its wake. Still, Romine knows what she wants to do. She wants to ride again. CONTINUE
