Event rider Emily Gilruth has expressed her thanks for the support she has received since falling from her horse at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials last month. 

British Eventing shared Gilruth's message. She said: "Thank you so much to everyone for their kind thoughts, messages and support since my fall at Badminton Horse Trials.

“It is just four weeks since Badminton and I am now recovering at home after an intense programme last week at the Injured Jockey’s Oaksey House in Lambourn.

“I owe a huge debt of thanks to everyone involved in the Medical Support at Badminton, the Intensive Care Unit at Bristol’s Southmead Hospital, the Royal Stoke University Hospital and the team at Oaksey House, without whom I would not be so well on the road to recovery. Thank you all.”

Emily was injured at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials on 6th May.

She suffered a traumatic brain injury after her fall at the third fence and had to be airlifted to Bristol's Southmead hospital.

Two weeks ago, it was reported that Emily had been making good progress and had been allowed to spend the weekend with her family.
