Hawley Bennett-Awad, the Canadian eventer who fell on the Olympic cross-country at Greenwich Park on Monday, has been released from hospital.
Bennett-Awad, of Langley, British Columbia, parted company with Gin & Juice, a 12-year-old thoroughbred mare she co-owns, at the third fence of the London course.
The 35-year-old rider continues to improve, and was released from hospital on Wednesday afternoon. She will remain in London for a few more days.
Bennett-Awad suffered a concussion in the fall, as well as a fractured sacrum, a bone at the base of the spine.
The Canadian equestrian team’s Kerri McGregor said Bennett-Awad was kept in hospital for longer for treatment due to discomfort with her tailbone.
She was the highest placed member of the Canadian eventing team after the dressage phase.
