Long road to recovery for injured Jonty Evans
on 12 June 2018
The 46-year-old event rider remains under the neurological team's care at Beaumont Hospital

IRISH event rider Jonty Evans continues to be in a stable condition in intensive care at Beaumont Hospital under the care of the hospital’s neurological team.

In a press release from Horse Sport Ireland today (Monday), Jonty’s family expressed their thanks to the wonderful staff at the hospital and for all the best wishes and kind messages of support that have poured in since he fell from Cooley Rorkes Drift on Sunday, June 3rd at the Tattersalls International Horse Trials.

“The family appreciate that people do wish to understand the nature of Jonty’s head injury and we can confirm that Jonty has not yet recovered consciousness after his fall. Although no longer under heavy sedation, further tests in the past few days have shown that it is a significant brain injury and it may take Jonty many months to recover. The Beaumont Hospital medical team continue to emphasise that every case has to be treated individually and people’s recovery rates vary case by case.”

In 2014, Jonty suffered a brain bleed which resulted in loss of movement in his right leg after a fall from a young horse.

Horse Sport Ireland once again asked well-wishers not to contact the hospital for information.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jonty and his family at this time.
