A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said later: “Crews arrived to find a woman with a reduced level of consciousness after falling from a horse. The woman, believed to be around 50, suffered head injuries and also a wrist injury.  She received emergency treatment at the scene by medics and due to her condition was anaesthetised by the doctor.

"She was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar and was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Major Trauma Unit for further emergency treatment."
