When Tori was 9 years old she rode a horse for the first time outside of birthday parties and pony rides. The horse was named Sparky and within 10 minutes he broke away from the trainer and threw her to the ground. Tori got right back up and on the same horse.
Today, all these years later, once again Tori got back in the saddle. The farm was traded in for a therapy room and although this horse was named Sparky as well, he required an electrical outlet for his inspiration rather than a special treat.
Hopefully one day the mechanical horse will be replaced with a real one and then it will be Tori herself who will be "throwing" all of us onto the ground and on our knees in admiration and thanks.
