Canadian Olympian Peter Barry has been in all of our thoughts and prayers since suffering a stroke last weekend during Carolina International.

Sue Ockendon confirmed to EN that Peter has been released from the ICU today and moved to a regular room at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, North Carolina. They are looking to fly him home to Canada early next week, where he will continue his recovery.

Sue says Peter is making steady progress and is appreciative of the support he has been shown by the eventing community. He has been checking his Facebook page, so that’s a good way for friends and fellow eventers to communicate their well-wishes.

We are thankful for the positive update and wish Peter all the best for a speedy recovery!
