A special thank you to everyone who help raised funds for Irish Olympian Kevin Babington during the period of the Longines Global Champions Tour of New York and to all those who wish Kevin well for his recovery. Donations totalled around $175,000 and the funds will contribute towards the medical costs for Kevin’s recovery and rehabilitation following his riding accident this summer where he suffered severe spinal injuries.

The Kevin Babington Foundation is dedicated to educating riders about safety equipment to help protect against spinal injuries to ensure a safe and rewarding experience on horseback; providing information about the correct processes for the care of spinal injuries; and supporting the recovery of riders who have suffered spinal injuries. If you would like to find out more about the work of the Foundation please contact:

We all wish Kevin a strong recovery and send our best wishes to him and his family.
