All clear scan results. Good news for John Whitaker as he recovers from a worrying fall when Cassinis Chaplin made an abrupt refusal last Saturday, 5th August, at the Longines Global Champions Tour in London.

“When you hit the ground, your first instinct is always to get up and get straight back on the horse but I couldn’t feel my feet,” said John. “That was the most worrying time, and that’s why the paramedics put the screens up round me.

“But it wasn’t too long before the feeling came back to my feet and as soon as it did I knew I was all right. I could move my arms OK and I didn’t lose consciousness — I was just a bit dazed.

With cheeky humour, John added,

“The scans came back all clear, thankfully. My neck and back are still stiff — as I said to Geoff Billington, I’m stiff but in all the wrong places!
