A message from @vicki_wilson_nz
I better make a public announcement and let everyone know I will not be riding this season while I recover from my many injuries over the years.
For as long as I can remember I have been competing, breaking in, shoeing, fixing sore and dangerous horses and along the way I have had my fair share of spills, knocks, bumps and bruises. Lately my body has been reminding me of these times so I have decided to take some time out to repair what currently aches, creaks and is broken!
To give me the best chance to fix what needs to be fixed I will be emptying my stables and will not be taking on any new breakin’s, schooling horses or dangerous horses to work. This season you won’t see me on the jumping circuit, although I hope when my recovery allows that I can come along to various events as a spectator.
The hardest part of this decision is the realisation that I will have to sell a number of my jumping team, I will be listing these horses for sale over the upcoming days.
Although I am not looking forward to the various surgeries that lie ahead, I am really excited about the opportunity to rest and repair and to also spend some time resetting my goals and making a plan for the years ahead.
Lastly, before anyone asks, don’t worry I will be fighting fit and ready to go for RTTH 2018!! Vicki
