WEST ORANGE, New Jersey, June 25–Courtney King-Dye on Friday went home from The Kessler Institute where she had been undergoing rehabilitation for three months after sustaining a serious head injury in a horse accident in March.

“Today is a big day for Courtney — she is no longer living at Kessler!” reported Lendon Gray, her long-time mentor.

“She will be going in on weekdays for speech and physical therapies and then home on weekends.”

Courtney, 32, is based at Bel Air Farm in Millbrook, New York, during the summer and in Wellington, Florida during the winter. The accident occurred in Florida on Mar. 2 and Courtney remained in a coma for weeks before being airlifted to New Jersey on Mar. 25.

On Idocus, she represented the USA for the first time at the World Cup in Las Vegas in 2007 then again in The Netherlands in 2008.

She rode Mythilus for the USA at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong in 2008.
