Rebecca Chisholm was left with dangerous wounds when she was tossed from a Horse on May 10th.
Ms Chisholm, from East Bridgford, was riding with her mother when the horse bolted and she was thrown off, leaving her unconscious with serious head injuries and her face “caked in sand and blood.”
Wendy Skelton. mother of the 24-year-old rider, informed us of her daughter’s words when she came to, “Mum, I am dying. I love you,” she whispered.
The Horse Riding and Breyer Community Magazine is thankful to the King of Dubai for his kindness to pay the bills of Rebecca Chisholm and her on going Medical Treatment. Horse lovers and others will always remember his great favor for the rider.
The reports went on to say, “The treatment expenses of a Nottinghamshire lady injured in Dubai while horseback riding are to be met by the King Of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.”
As many people are aware, the sport of horseback riding is done at the rider’s risk and they consent to this in writing before each and every ride. This meant that the injured woman’s expenses would have to be paid by the injured party, herself. Knowing this, her family was propelled to raise £60,000 to help cover the medical costs.
The King Of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, stepped up and has affirmed that he will cover all the bills while she is in the hospital.
An initial funding target of £60,000 was close to being met when Dubai’s Ruler intervened.
A statement on the family’s funding page read, “We can announce today that His Excellency, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has offered singularly the most generous gift we could ever have wished to receive. His Highness has offered to pay for all of Becca’s medical costs until she is discharged from Rashid Hospital. We will be forever thankful to him and his country.”
The family said the money raised will go towards paying for a medical flight home from the Arabian kingdom and aftercare.
