Irish event rider Jonty Evans is set to return to Tattsersalls International Horse Trials a year on from his accident at the event.
During last year’s competition, Evans suffered a severe fall from Cooley Rorkes Drift during the cross country phase that left the eventing fraternity in a state of shock.
Commenting on his upcoming visit, Evans said; “I’m coming to Tattersalls because it’s one of my favourite events of the year, I feel really at home there. I actually only have good memories of last year because my horses had all gone really well and I had my son Charlie was with me, so until I actually had the accident I had a great time. I don’t remember anything after it happened.
“Most of all I’m looking forward to seeing the people who helped me; the stall holders, the officials, the riders and the organisers were absolutely great and continue to be really supportive. I will be having a good look round the trade stands, the fair rides, definitely walking the cross-country courses and have signed myself up for commentary of the live streaming. I can’t wait.”
