Walking on Crutches: Thomas Fuchs

It was an unpleasant experience for Thomas Fuchs, Chef d’Équipe of the Swiss show jumpers when he fractured his shin and calf bones and also injured several tendons, so the pferdewoche.ch reported. The 59-year-old rider had fallen from a 7-year-old horse on Thursday. On Sunday, Fuchs underwent surgery. He should be able to leave the hospital at the end of the week, but he will be walking on crutches for ten more weeks.
