Road to recover still long for William Fox-Pitt

William Fox-Pitt is making “stead progress” but his recovery is going to take some time, according to a new statement published on his William Fox-Pitt eventing.

The world-number-three has been in hospital since October 17, when he suffered a head trauma after falling during the cross-country phase at the 2015 World Championships for Young Horses in Le Lion d’Angers.

Immediately taken to the hospital in Angers, Fox Pitt has shown signs of steady improvement and was moved out of the intensive care unit at the end of last week. However, it looks like it will be a while longer before he’ll be able to leave the hospital and France.

According to the statement, Fox-Pitt’s “family are hugely grateful to the team who are looking after him, and also to everyone who has sent messages of support.”
