UPDATE on Danni – FALL at WL SJumping Southview


Hi, please can you update people to let them know Danni is making good progress and has been taken off ventilator. She’s aware of all messages of support and help and she’s really grateful. Thankyou! Gail Thomas x

Danni Thomas from CHN Branch had a nasty fall yesterday and was taken to Alderhay by Air Ambulance.  I know that everyone was very worried  but the latest news is that she is on a ventilator, is stable but sedated. She has severely bruised her lungs but her ribs are intact.  She has no other obvious injuries.

I am told that the situation was handled brilliantly by the organisers.

We wish her a speedy recovery.

In addition, if you are intending to compete under FEI, British Eventing, British Show Jumping or British Dressage rules you will need to ensure you are compliant with their rules.
