British showjumper Tim Stockdale has announced that he will take a break from competitions after being diagnosed with stomach cancer. On his official Facebook page, Stockdale wrote the following announcement last week: 

"We would like to announce that I will taking a short break from riding as I have been diagnosed with stomach cancer this week. 

It's important to focus on getting over this obstacle before we make plans for the future. 

I would like to thank all of my owners and sponsors for their kind words and support during this difficult time."

The support for the British rider has been pouring in, and after sharing the sad news Stockdale followed up with the following message to friends and fans: "Overwhelmed is an understatement. We never expected so many messages yesterday and we, as a family, are still going through them all. You are all very kind. Thank you."

Stockdale has represented Great Britain on over 50 occasions in Nations Cups, competed at the 2002 World Equestrian Games, the 2008 Olympic Games as well as at the 2009 European Championships.

At World of Showjumping we wish the whole Stockdale family strength in this difficult time, and hope to see Tim back in the saddle soon.
