(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Oman's top rider Hamood al Dughaishi, who was seriously injured during a race on Thursday, is in stable condition in hospital, according to #Oman Equestrian Federation (OEF) officials on Saturday.


Dughaishi, who got #Oman off to a sound start with the individual lance gold on the opening day of the Tent Pegging World Cup on Monday, took a rough knock after his horse suffered a heart attack and collapsed near the finish line during the team lance and peg event. Dughaishi slipped under the collapsing horse and suffered multiple fractures in his ribs. He also injured his right shoulder and right hip.


Mohammed Issa al Fairuz the ITPF chairman, said, ''Dughaishi is recovering well and is in stable condition. He underwent an operation and it will take some time for him to recover completely. Thankfully, he is out of danger now.''


Dughaishi was in impressive form in the World Cup before the accident, having won a silver in the rings and pegs event and a bronze medal in the lemon and pegs category to add to his opening day gold.


Oman's coach Mansoor al Mahrouqi admitted that Dughaishi's injury affected the team's performance on Friday. ''The injury to Dughaishi affected the team's morale. I am happy that we could grab the overall silver medal, though,'' he said.
