SALT LAKE CITY – Forty-four days after a horse crushed his liver at a rodeo, Power bareback rider Jessy Davis has been discharged from the Intermountain Medical Center in Utah.
“He gets to go home to his girls (Quincee and Cru),” his wife Cassidy Davis said in a Facebook post. “He will saddle up his horse and ride with no worries.”
Davis, a seven-time NFR qualifier, was injured after a horse landed on him during the first round of the WCRA Lewis Field Bulls and Broncs event in Salt Lake City in February.
His liver was nearly split in half and he required 21 liters of blood to save his life.
Davis was discharged from the hospital on Sunday and is currently in his hometown of Spanish Fork, Utah with his family.
“Jess has a few follow-up appointments in the next week or so, then we are headed North,” Cassidy said. “Our goal has been and will be to get back to our girls and our ranch that we have been away from for way too long.”
Before his accident, Davis had been mulling retirement.
