After Ludger Beerbaum sustained a fracture to his thigh during the Longines Global Champions Tour in Doha at the beginning of March, his long-time stable jockey and GCL team-mate Philipp Weishaupt has also been forced to take a break. Weishaupt broke his foot last week, just before leaving for The Dutch Masters where his horses were already all set up for the weekend. 

“I was playing with my dog, tried to jump over a little 20 cm hedge, and twisted my ankle as I took off,” Weishaupt told World of Showjumping about his accident. “As soon as I landed, I knew it was not good… You know immediately, and it did not feel like a little bruise. My foot had to be operated, and they put a screw in. I am doing good now – I am just a bit annoyed about how it happened. So far, I am not bored, as our son is keeping us busy.”

“Realistically, it will be around six weeks before I can start riding again,” Weishaupt said about his recovery. “I think Ludger will be back before me, as in my case there are a lot of tendons and ligaments as well as little bones surrounding the broken area, so the recovery might not be that straightforward. For the next six weeks, I cannot put any weight on my foot.” 

At World of Showjumping, we wish Philipp a speedy recovery!
