Bettina Eistel is a German dressage rider.
She was born without arms and has since learned to use her feet and her mouth to teach herself a number of things – including riding dressage.
Eistel has won a number of medals at the most prestigious equestrian events, including the 2004 Paralympics in Athens.
Her horse is named Fabuleux 5, and they’ve been a team for most of Eistel’s career.
Eistel takes care of Fabuleux 5 just like we would; the washes, brushes, feeds and trains her horse daily, though she does it all with her feet.
When riding, Eistel holds the reigns in her mouth and with her feet, a combination that had lead her to worldwide victory and success.

Building A Classic Backyard Aussie Garage
One of the great privileges of engineering and building is that we have the opportunity to build the backyards of Australians.
It’s a very satisfying and rewarding thing to know that garages and sheds that we’ve built will be a place for homes, families, their cars, their pets and their hobbies.
We revisited a small backyard garage that we put together and were charmed by how it turned out. With the classic Australian cricket bat and ball, a wandering dog and a set of chairs, it represented perfectly everything that makes us proud to be doing garages and domestic properties.
We work with our clients so that we can understand exactly what they want and how we can work together to achieve it. This project looks fantastic, and is the perfect way to make a house a home; where the family can spend time together, meals can be shared and life can be lived.
