    Word has it that Charlie was badly injured at horse show and was helicoptered out. More info coming...

    I hope he is okay. He was always one of my favorite riders to watch when I was a kid in the late 70s/early 80s.

    Any word?

    Charlie never missed a distance!!! In all the years I watched him show, he would lay down some beautiful trips, every time!

    Operated on last night. Awake...no movement...slight sensation. That's about it. Keep prayers coming.

    Charlie is at the trauma center in Delray. I don't want to add to any rumors, so I am reluctant to say anything, but there are obviously a lot of people seeking information and I spent a lot of time trying to find accurate info today. I have heard from a number of people who confirm that he has broken his neck, but there have been some signs of improvement in sensation and possibly movement. No one has a confirmed report of how the accident happened, other than the fact that it did not happen on the actual showgrounds.
    I hope someone closer to the situation can provide accurate updated information on his condition and what anyone may do to help. Charlie is a wonderful person, and I think everyone is praying for him right now.
