    Fox-Pitt: British eventer is back in the saddle after head injury
    British eventer William Fox-Pitt has revealed he has started riding again, just two months after suffering severe head injuries in a competition fall.

    In a 47-second video posted on YouTube on Wednesday, he said he had enjoyed "a very exciting day" back in the saddle.

    "I had to set myself a target and very happily was able to do that," said the former world number one.

    The video shows the 46-year-old, who thanked well-wishers for their support, riding again in an indoor arena.

    Fox-Pitt was placed in an induced coma after falling at the World Young Horse Championships in Lion-D'Angers on 17 October.

    He was treated in France before returning to England.

    Fox-Pitt is GB's most successful rider with 20 major championship medals.

    His horse Reinstated was unharmed in the incident in western France.
