A teenage girl, riding a horse, had a traumatic fall in which the horse also went down and ended up by falling on her face. As a result, the 15-year-old suffered head and collar bone injuries.

The accident occurred while she was horseback riding in a field near Edwin Stowe on Dec. 8 in the early afternoon.

Emergency crews from Derbyshire, Leicestershire and the Rutland Air Ambulance were summoned for help. The girl was taken to Queen's Medical Center. Because the accident location was away from main roads and remote, the air ambulance was necessary for the rescue.

The rider was immobilized prior to being flown to the hospital in Nottingham for evaluation and treatment.

A spokesperson for the Rutland Air Ambulance confirmed that the teenage accident victim was treated for head and collar bone injuries. Apparently, the horse and rider were obstacle jumping when the horse slipped while taking a hurdle.

No further information has become available on the injured person’s name or condition at this time.
