We’re sending our best wishes to Mary King after she and Kings Temptress suffered a heavy rotational fall yesterday at Salperton Park Horse Trials in Gloucestershire, England. Mary broke her nose and wrist and was knocked unconscious during the fall, Horse & Hound reports; she is currently recovering at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The rotational fall occurred at fence 19, a roll top toward the end of the intermediate course designed by Mike Etherington-Smith. We’ll continue to keep you updated on Mary’s condition. Click here to read the full story on Horse & Hound.

Update: Horse & Hound’s original report on Mary’s fall has since been amended, as the magazine was supplied with incorrect information. Mary did not break any bones, as was originally believed, and she was discharged from the hospital after three hours with a slight concussion. She returned to Salperton the following day to groom for her daughter, Emily.
