General Interest
Other information STROKE
In March 2017 he suffered a stroke during the Carolina International in Raeford, NC, United States of America. He spent several days in an intensive care unit before being released. He sat on a horse for the first time 11 months after his stroke in February 2018. "I was always very active, spending most of my day in the saddle, and now I find it very difficult to pass my days. So, you cannot believe what a great relief it is to be back in the saddle and go back to doing what you enjoy and what you spent so much time doing."
