- Young event rider and point-to-point jockey Rosie Chinery is making good progress after a serious fall in which she broke her neck.
Rosie, 18, was riding work in Newmarket last Wednesday, 11 March, when the horse she was riding died underneath her. She was taken to Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s Hopsital in a critical condition. Read more about Rosie’s recovery…
- Correction: We reported on the show that Rosie Chinery’s horse survived the fall that injured Rosie. In fact the horse died at the scene and we apologize for this error.
- Olympic horse FRH Butts Abraxxas of German eventing team Gold medalist Ingrid Klimke changes its owner but will stay in Klimke’s stable. German ridesport patron Madeleine Winter-Schulze who owns already most of the top horses of German jumping star Ludger Beerbaum and also of German dressage queen Isabell Werth, has bought “Braxxi”.
