Natasha Baker has won Great Britain's first equestrian gold medal of the 2012 Paralympic Games at Greenwich Park.

The 22-year-old, who is making her Paralympic debut, triumphed in the Grade II individual championship earlier today.

Although based on the outskirts of London, Miss Baker trains at Milton-under-Wychwood in Oxfordshire.

She contracted a virus, Transverse Myelitis, when she was 14 months old. It left her weakened and unable to feel her legs.
