After breaking his leg in a fall during the Grand Prix at the Brussels Stephex Masters yesterday, Cassio Rivetti’s surgery has proved to be successful. The rider will now have to take it easy during the next few months, but luckily there have been no complications – and Rivetti can look forward to coming back in the saddle towards the end of the year.
On his website, Rivetti writes:
I had a peaceful night after a successful surgery on the leg I broke jumping the GP of Stephex Master with my horse, Torgal de Virton.
Recovery shall take some months which I will dedicate to spend quality time with my loved ones, recharging the batteries for my return.
Thanks to all and each one of you for the many messages and positive thoughts. Very appreciated! Special thanks to Brussels Stephex Master and its incredible medical team as well as the whole staff at UZ Brussels hospital.
Thanks also to all my sponsors and fans for standing on my side in a such hard moment of my career. Congrats Stephan Conter for putting together a great show. Well done!
I will be back soon doing what I love the most, riding and jumping.
