14 April 2009

Meg Wade was competing in the TUMBARUMBA ENDURANCE RIDE on the weekend, (photo coverage to follow tomorrow), Horse Deals has received information that apparently her horse shied at a puddle and she fell and lay unconscious, fortunately only 100 yards from a checkpoint. Ambos & a doctor attended very quickly and she was airlifted to hospital in Canberra, still unconscious. Lastest news is that she was in an induced coma last night and still in ICU this morning.

Meg is so widely known and respected both here and throughout the middle east and Europe, Our thoughts and prayers are with her, and hopefully they will be enough to see her back on her horse soon!
