Nicola Wilson update from British Equestrian

British Equestrian have today released an update on Nicola Wilson following her fall at Badminton Horse Trials, presented by Mars Equestrian, during the cross country phase of the event (Saturday 7th May).

British Equestrian has released the following statement:

Nicola Wilson was taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol following her fall from JL Dublin at Badminton Horse Trials on Saturday 7 May where she has received outstanding care and attention from the expert team.

Nicola is in intensive care and will be for the next week or so.  She is able to breathe independently and is talking. She sustained no head injury.

There are several spinal fractures but these are all stable and will not require any surgical intervention but will be managed conservatively.

Other acute symptoms from the trauma are being managed in intensive care by the specialists at Southmead.

British Equestrian’s Athlete Health Lead Ashleigh Wallace and Chief Medical Officer Anna-Louise Mackinnon have been working with Nicola’s family and the team at Southmead to ensure all medical information is shared fully across the teams so that care and appropriate support is optimised.

Her horse, JL Dublin, owned by James & Jo Lambert and Deirdre Johnston, is now back at Nicola’s base in Yorkshire and will be monitored by the team but appears none the worse for his fall.

Nicola, her husband Alastair and mother Mary Tweddle would like to thank the team at Southmead for everything they have done so far. They feel incredibly supported by their eventing family and appreciate all the well wishes and messages received.

With thanks to British Equestrian
