On 2 November 2020 Swedish born American Grand Prix rider Hokan Thorn was found unresponsive and got rushed to the hospital, where he spent two weeks in an artificial coma.
His condition is now improving.
Thorn's husband Richard Ruben, whom he married in 2013, has been by his side.
The 61-year old Thorn is originally from Visby, Sweden. His life has been all about horses, working first as an apprentice at the state stud in Flyinge and then at Stromsholm before moving to Germany, where he worked under Udo Lange and Alain Gaihede. In 1983 he moved to the U.S.A., accepting a riding job in Aiken, SC.
