Tim Stockdale Injured

Tim Stockdale from Roade, Northampton has sustained injuries following a recent fall schooling a horse at home. The accident occurred whilst Tim was schooling through a combination when the horse he was riding tipped over, throwing Tim into the next part of the combination, the fence then fell on top of Tim and the horse.

The horse escaped injury free, but Tim having been knocked unconscious was taken to hospital by ambulance. X-rays revealed that Tim has shattered and dislocated a thumb which will be operated on, on Wednesday and another X-ray will be taken of Tim's jaw which has a suspect hairline fracture. Tim hopes to be back in the saddle for the Royal Show (hand permitting - it will be set in fibreglass) and has purchased some 'loop' reins which would enable him to ride if the Doctor's permit.
