Swiss show jumper Romain Duguet is on bed rest following a fall at his Normandy stables on Sunday.
The 2017 FEI World Cup Final runner up and two-time European Champion team bronze medalist fractured his sacrum (a triangular bone at the top of the pelvis) in a fall when his horse slipped. He will be confined to bed for the next six weeks and out of the saddle for the next several months, reported CHI Geneva.
Duguet was slated to compete at the 5* event this week. Replacing him in Thursday evening’s Trophée de Genève, a qualifier for Sunday’s Rolex Grand Prix, is Swedish Olympic medalist Peder Fredricson.
Speedy recovery, Romain!
