Eventers Show Support for Jonty Evans with #WearGreenForJonty

#WearGreenForJonty CALLING ALL EVENTING FAMILY PLEASE TAG AND SHARE Whilst we are all still taking in the news of @jontyeventing stable but non changing condition this week, we at Eventing Worlwide thought we would do something positive to show our support by asking all of our eventing family to please wear something green. Starting this Saturday 30th June and throughout July. Whether you are out competing XC or just out supporting the sport – put on something green and get into the Irish Spirit!! Headed up by our very own blogger Alice Dunsdon – Alice hopes that during the month of July, we all show our support for Jonty and go green on the course. β€œWe all know the eventing community is such a close family group, and when anyone has a fall or an injury we all feel it, so when it happens to one of our Sports legends we must all get together and show our support for him and his family. Change your hat silk, change your base layer, put a green numnah or browband on, it doesnt matter what, just 'Wear Green for Jonty" Please also post up pictures so his family can feel the support with the hashtag #WearGreenForJonty

When Eventing World Wide issued a rally cry to show support for the plight of Jonty Evans by wearing green, the eventing community answered. The #WearGreenForJonty initiative has taken off, with eventers around the world posting photos of themselves in Jonty’s signature colors. Proceeds from the campaign (visit the website here) go to benefit the David Foster Injured Riders Fund.

Jonty is in a coma after having suffered a head injuryΒ following a fall from Cooley Rorkes DriftΒ on the CIC3* cross country course at Tattersalls International Horse Trials & Country Fair on Sunday, June 3. At last update on June 20, Eventing Ireland confirmed that Jonty remains in a stable but serious condition in the high dependency ward in the Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, West Dublin.

We are all behind you, Jonty, and praying that you wake up soon. #WearGreenForJonty

I'm sure anyone who knows me is probably sick of hearing me mention about the #WearGreenForJonty campaign, but I think it's so so important for us all to pull together and show each other that we do care about one another. Sure, horse riding and ownership has competitions, but equally we're all in it for the same reason, and use it as an opportunity to meet new people, make new friends and support one another. Give advice, give someone a helping hand, give support, or just give someone a nice comment or a smile. Instead of sniggering and making rude remarks to someone because they forgot their SJ course mid round, congratulate them for getting out in the first place with their beautiful horse. It's not hard. The equestrian world needs all the love and support we can offer. Thinking of Jonty, and all his friends, family and connections. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š @eventingworldwide @pegasusjewellery @wimpyeventer #WearGreenForJonty #greenforjonty #jontyevans #jontyevanseventing #weargreen #eventingworldwide #EWW #britisheventing #be #eventing #eventersofinstagram #horseriding #horsesofinstagram #horseridersofinstagram #friendship #family #eventingfamily #support #bands #bracelet
