Guy Disney. Afghanistan war veteran, amputee and MBE.
The amateur jockey has made history several times, including when becoming the first jockey to ride with a prosthetic limb in 2015, before twice winning the Grand Artillery Gold Cup at Sandown, and becoming the first amputee to ride over the National fences at Aintree.
