He suffered multiple injuries in 2008 after an accident at a show in Germany when his horse Pikap broke a leg on take-off at an obstacle. Twomey suffered broken ribs and head injuries, and lay unconscious trapped under the horse for half an hour [the horse had to be euthanised on the spot]. He was out of competition for six months, and returned in October 2008. (billytwomey.com, 22 Jan 2015)
