BEIB Pledge Further Support to Injured Rider

Felicity Coulthard's major supporter BEIB (British Equestrian Insurance Brokers) has pledged to carry on with their current level of support for the forthcoming season even though this young rider has suffered a severe riding accident during training at the end of last summer.

Felicity who is sixteen years old spent a week in hospital after dislocating her shoulder, spraining her wrist and breaking three bones in her elbow. She now has three plates in her arm which meant that she was ordered by her doctor not to ride for the next 8 months at least! "This is a terrible blow" explains Felicity, "it not only means that I have missed out on the winter competitions, but it looks like I will not be ready for the summer as well".

Felicity has represented both Pendle RDA Group and the North West at the RDA National Dressage Championships for the past 2 years being placed winning ribbons on both occasions. At last year's championships which were held at Morten Morrell in Warwickshire, she won her class in test 21a and came second in the grade 1 Kur.

"I am extremely grateful to everyone at BEIB who have given me both support and hope throughout the past few months" said Felicity.
