Great Britain's equestrian rider Sophie Wells believes that life will change for her and her teammates after taking two silvers and a gold at the London Paralympic Games.

Great Britain's equestrian rider Sophie Wells believes that nothing will be able to "top" her Paralympic experience.

The 22-year-old took away two silver medals and one team gold during the equestrian event at the Games in London with the help of her horse Pinocchio.

"Life will never be the same after this. We'll never be able to top the experience," the Nottingham Post quotes Wells as saying. "I do this work because I fundamentally love horses. I don't do it for the medals or anything like that."

Meanwhile, Wells's teammate Lee Pearson has received praise from his parents after failing to defend his three gold medals at Greenwich Park.
