Badminton winner Inonothing Should Event Again Next Year

Badminton winner Inonothing, who was injured at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, is expected to be back eventing by the end of next season.

Jenny Waaler's 14-year-old hit the jump going into the first water, the Salato Wildlife Centre. Rider Paul Tapner realised he did not feel right and pulled him up at fence 13. X-rays found a chip of bone had come off his stifle.

Inonothing flew back to Belgium from Cincinnati with the other British-based horses on Tuesday last week. He was then driven back to England and straight to Newmarket, where he had an operation to remove the chip.

"The operation was a success and the bone chip was removed," Paul told H&H. "They found some extra damage to his cartilage which may make his recovery a little longer, but he's well and will hopefully come home on Monday [18 October].

"He won't be at Badminton to defend his title, but plan A is that he will be at Burghley or Pau next year."
