Seriously injured rider Laura Scott features in Horse & Hound

Horse and Hound online have featured Laura Scott, pictured at Horatio’s Garden Summer Drinks Party, on her recovery following a spinal injury and on raising £17,000 for her chosen charities, including Horatio’s Garden. 

The article described her accident where “she was seriously injured in March when a youngster she was riding in the school bucked, throwing her against a wooden fence. The fall broke Laura’s C5 and C6 vertebrae, damaging her spinal cord, and also crushed her spine in her lower back.”

Laura said Horatio’s Garden “provided a welcome retreat from the hospital wards with charity volunteers giving invaluable support to Laura’s family at the same time.”

A fundraising dinner was held on on 21 October. The evening, organised by Laura’s friends Johnson White, Michael Scott and Fran A’Brooke, raised more than £17,000 for the charities. Stars from the racing world spoke at the event, at Raleghs Cross on Exmoor, including AP McCoy, Luke Harvey and Alice Plunkett. “It was a fantastic evening and I really can’t thank everyone enough, from those who gave prizes for the auction to the people who bid for them.” Laura said.

The team at Horatio’s Garden wish Laura all the best in the future for her career. Thanks to Laura and all of her supporters for raising funds for charity.
