Teenager Works Toward Recovery Following Brain Injury

(Daily Inter Lake) – Not even two months after suffering a traumatic brain injury as the result of a car accident, 16-year-old Josie Elgin has her sights set on getting back to doing what she loves.

“She goes to see her horses every day,” her step-father David Berglund says.

The sophomore at Flathead High School competes in 4-H and Future Farmers of America. She’s earned blue ribbons for her pig at the fair. She’s competed in bronc riding and when her family adopted a mustang she broke and trained the horse herself.

“She’s a tough little cookie,” says her grandmother Shelly Berglund. “She likes rodeo and farm life, but horses are her thing.” CONTINUE
