Beezie Madden to have surgery to repair fractured collar bone

Monday, 19 May 2014

Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.After a fall, yesterday, with Breitling LS during the $100,000 Empire State Grand Prix at Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows, Beezie Madden will be undergoing surgery for a broken collar bone. Both Madden and Breitling LS fell on course at the open water obstacle. They were both quickly back on their feet after the fall and left the arena together after the elimination. Breitling was assessed immediately after the competition and was not injured.

Madden initially walked away from the fall, but was later seen by a doctor who confirmed a broken collar bone. It was determined that the best and fastest choice for recovery for Madden will be to have surgery to repair the fracture. Madden will undergo surgery tomorrow morning at the Hospital For Special Surgery in New York City to repair the fractured bone and begin her recovery process. It is yet to be determined how long the recovery process will be, but Madden looks forward to getting back in the saddle as soon as possible.

"It's unfortunate, but these things happen in this sport. I have a great string of horses with a hugely supportive team of owners, sponsors and co-workers behind me and have no doubt I will be back in the saddle soon," said Madden.
