Tina Fletcher fears injury may rule her out of Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) next month, following her fall from Hello Sailor at Spruce Meadows, Canada (5-9 September).

The Oxfordshire-based rider was injured when the horse’s stud pierced her ankle.

“Hopefully it won’t require surgery, Tina told H&H. “But for the moment I’m on complete rest and can’t put any weight on it.”

And HOYS (3-7 October) may be out of the question.

“The surgeon said no way but I keep hoping it will be all right,” she added.

Our HOYS preview is in next week’s issue (27 September 2012).

This news story was first published in the current issue of H&H (20 September 2012)
