While the cause of Multiple Sclerosis is still unknown, one thing is certain: it is a debilitating disease that is life-shattering. According to NationalMSSociety.org, scientists believe the disease is triggered by an as-yet-unidentified environmental factor in a person who is genetically predisposed to respond. This is a unique disease with severity that varies from person to person, and affects nearly three times the number of women as it does men–with most people being diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 50.

Hollywood actress and equestrian, Selma Blair, 46, shared with the public just a few months ago her recent diagnosis of MS. In October of this year, Selma took to her Instagram account to share her struggles with her fans on social media, two months after her original diagnosis:

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member… thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. 🖤 my instagram family… you know who you are.

Since the time of her post, she’s used her platform to serve as an advocate for those living daily with this incurable disease with courageousness and dignity. Despite the massive outpouring of love she’s received from her fans and the media, there is one thing she misses more than anyone, her horse, Mr. Nibbles:

Finally feel like I have a good head on my shoulders. #mrnibbles.

This past weekend, Selma finally felt strong enough again to get back on Mr. Nibbles, who she used to spend countless hours of her time showjumping with. Needless to say, there were many tears all around for those who watched the beautiful moments unfold…

“It was a fairytale,” she wrote. “My horse in my front yard, with more emotions than these words can hold. The gratitude. Thank you #cellardoorequestrian for knowing when I needed you the most. I will heal. I will ride. But until then I will hold onto this feeling and post pictures whenever we all need to believe people will move mountains and horses to help us heal.”

This happened. My magical unicorn, #mrnibbles , held my body while I broke open with gratitude. I haven’t been able to ride for four months or more. I haven’t been able to get to him, so my saint of a trainer, @kjrides brought him to me. It was a fairytale. My horse in my front yard, with more emotions than these words can hold. The gratitude. Thank you #cellardoorequestrian for knowing when I needed you the most. I will heal. I will ride. But until then I will hold onto this feeling and post pictures whenever we all need to believe people will move mountains and horses to help us heal. Thank you @lyon_hearted for arranging this. All my love ❤️ @cellardoorequestrian , my angels. #tearsofjoy 😥 #mystory

In this image here, she captions so beautifully, with the simple yet powerful words: “I can.”

As many of us horse lovers know, horses have the power to heal those who are hurting and need love the most. We are sure Mr. Nibbles will be the rock Selma needs during her time of healing and help her on her road to recovery.
