I was extremely fortunate this did not happen.“I underwent an eight hour operation where they repaired the fractures and stabilised my cervical spine. This procedure in itself was not without risk, and I cannot thank enough, the team of spinal surgeons at the John Radcliffe hospital, for what they have done.“Obviously I won’t be riding again this season as it will take some time to fully recover. Whilst I have to take things easy, I am up and about and fully mobile, and look forward to getting back to full fitness in due course.“Thank you in advance for allowing my family and I some privacy and time to rest and recover.” Tags: Andrew Nicholson, Cillnabradden Evo, Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition!
