One day after the freak accident at the 2015 CDI Arezzo, Valentina Truppa is in the intensive care unit of Policlinico Santa Maria delle Scotte hospital in Siena, Italy, where she remains under pharmacological sedation, but is in a stable condition.

The Truppa family released a statement on the current medical condition of the 29-year old rider. On Sunday 7 June Valentina fell off a 7-year old when the horse spooked upon entering the arena for a national Intermediaire I test in Arezzo. 

Dr. Hector Zei is currently treating Valentina and said that the patient is pharmacologically sedated, but that the her general and neurological condition is stable. At the moment no focal lesions are showing. If her condition remains stable they will slowly proceed to awaken her tomorrow.

The statement did not reveal whether the pharmacological sedation is a medically induced coma, frequently applied to patients with swelling due to a brain injury.
