William Fox-Pitt has been taken to the hospital following a fall from Reinstated, an Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by Teresa Stopford Stackville and Catherine Butler. The pair was competing in the 7-year-old championships for Young Event Horses, a CCI2* level competition, at Le Lion d’Angers.

William’s Twitter page has reported that he is being taken to the hospital for “further testing” following the fall and that the horse was uninjured. Horse & Hound reports that the course was held for over an hour while medical staff attended to William.
