A YOUNG female horse rider broke her leg when her horse fell on top of her in Great Alne yesterday.
The 20-year-old had to be airlifted to hospital from Hill Farm shortly before 11am.
After she fell off the back of her horse, her horse also fell over and landed on her leg and pelvis.
Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance took off from Coventry Airport at 10.43am and landed at the scene ten minutes later.
A spokesperson said: “On arrival, the crew assessed the patient and noticed that she had sustained a broken leg as well as suspected pelvis and back injuries.
“The patient was sedated to allow traction and a pelvic splint was applied. The patient was flown to University Hospital in Coventry for further treatment.
"Her condition was stable when she was handed over to hospital staff.”
