Katharina Offel Has to Take a Break Due to Fall

The day at the Sunshine Tour in Spain first went very well for Katharina Offel. The German show-jumper won the big tour with Selma and had further clear rounds with Quitana, Scoop, Connie and Can Can. That is more that one can hope for. But then her day took a turn for the worse: during the warm-up with her last horse Offel fell hard and had to be brought to hospital. Soon it was clear that she was not injured severely, but now the 40-year-old rider has to take a break for good measure before she can start riding again. On her Facebook page Offel expressed her thanks to the medical staff and everyone who had helped: “I am happy to have escaped without serious injuries.”
