William Fox-Pitt, no news is good news?!
King of British Eventing, William Fox-Pitt, ‘continues to make steady progress’ as reported on the official British Eventing website on the 4.11.2015. Remaining in the French hospital his condition is now stable, although he’s been told it’ll be a long road on the way to recovery.
2015 has seen the Dorset based rider achieve a lifetime ambition riding Stallion, Chilli Morning, when the pair won The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, it’s a shame to see the season end for him in this way.
The horse he fell from, Reinstated, was not injured during the accident on October 17 at the World Championships for Young Eventing Horses, which takes place in France each year. The event was halted for an hour and a half while Fox-Pitt received treatment, shortly after he was transferred to the Angers hospital in North West France where he was placed in an induced coma.
Over a week had passed when Fox-Pitt was brought around and moved out of intensive care. Alice Plunket, travelled immediately over to France to be by the side of her husband.
There’s been no further news or updates over the weekend, here’s hoping for no news is good news. Sending our very best wishes to the riders close family and friends!
