Alison Dare, the leading point-to-point rider, was yesterday reported to be in a satisfactory condition after breaking her leg on Saturday.

She was admitted to Horton Hospital in Banbury after being kicked by a horse during a race at Heythrop.

Dare, 37, won the lady riders' point-to-point championships five times in seven seasons from 1986 to 1992. Earlier on Saturday's card she had become the first woman to ride 200 point-to-point winners when partnering Stephen's Pet to victory.
