After suffering a crashing fall on cross country at Badminton Horse Trials on Saturday, British Equestrian has provided an update on the condition of reigning European Champion Nicola Wilson. Both Nicola as well as JL Dublin fell at fence 27, a corner following the MARS M; the fence was subsequently removed from the course.

British Equestrian released the following statement this morning:

Following her fall from JL Dublin at Badminton Horse Trials on Saturday 7th May, Nicola Wilson has had a comfortable night in hospital, and is conscious in a stable condition and awaiting further tests. She is receiving the best possible care from the team at Southmead Hospital.

Her husband, Alistair, and the rest of the family are very grateful for all of the messages of support and these are being shared with Nicola. ‘Dubs’ is in good form and will be making his way back to Yorkshire later today. We will bring you further updates as and when we can.
