11th July Update

Jonty remains in a very serious but stable condition and has recently shown some early signs of progress in regaining consciousness. However, he remains very seriously ill having suffered a significant brain injury in his fall and any recovery will take an indefinite period of time.
 
Jonty continues to receive expert medical treatment and rehabilitation from the staff at the Connolly Hospital. We are especially grateful to the nursing teams for all their wonderful care and treatment. We are also, very grateful for the support Jonty has received from the David Foster Injured Riders Fund. The family has requested that rather than send flowers or cards, donations to the David Foster Injured Riders Fund would be welcomed.
Jonty’s family thank everybody for their kind thoughts, continued support and best wishes
 
 
20th June Update

Horse Sport Ireland has issued another update on 20th June on the condition of the popular Irish eventing rider Jonty Evans

“Jonty remains in a stable but serious condition in hospital. Jonty has now been moved from intensive care at the Beaumont Hospital to a high dependency ward in the Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, West Dublin.

Unfortunately, there is no change to report in his condition from the most recent update. Jonty remains unconscious, with a very serious head injury.  The family deeply appreciate all the care for Jonty from the Beaumont Hospital staff and the support and messages from all his family and friends.

Further updates will be issued if there is a change in Jonty’s condition”

Jonty has been hospitalised since his fall from Cooley Rorkes Drift at Tattersalls where they were competing in the CIC3* on 3rd June. He was taken to Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown then transferred to the neuro intensive care unit at Beaumont Hospital

A previous update on Monday 11th June confirmed that tests had shown that Jonty had suffered a serious brain injury and that it ‘may take him many months to recover’ emphasising that ‘every case has to be treated individually and people’s recovery rates vary case by case’
