Jennie Brannigan is recovering from a broken jaw after falling from FE Lifestyle on the CCI4*-S cross country course on Saturday, March 23, at Carolina International in Raeford, North Carolina.

FE Lifestyle, a 9-year-old German Sport Horse gelding owned by Tim and Nina Gardner, left a leg jumping into the coffin at Fence 7A on Ian Stark’s course, and Jennie fell into the ditch. The horse was uninjured in the incident.

She had surgery yesterday at UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to repair her broken jaw. Her doctors are planning for her to return home to Pennsylvania later this week.

Jennie extended her thanks to all who have reached out with well wishes. The EN team sends her all the best for a speedy recovery.
