A LAST-MINUTE SUB

Horse & Hound - - Riding Club -

TINA KAZMI and her charm­ing skew­bald, Colour Me Af­ter­shock, were a last-minute sub­sti­tu­tion to com­plete the Soli­hull team and bravely took on the chal­lenge, de­spite only hav­ing been back in the sad­dle for four weeks.

A jump­ing fall from “Shed­ley” caused a plateau tib­ial frac­ture and her knee now has the ad­di­tion of plates and pins. Karen, who works as a project man­ager, was in a wheelchair for three months and only be­gan walk­ing in July.

“My knee’s wrapped with sports tape and I can only ride for short pe­ri­ods,” she ex­plained. “I have to shorten my warm-up. I wasn’t put off rid­ing Shed­ley — he’s too lovely to be put off.”
