Equine insurance: Woman airlifted following accident

Equine insurance policyholders have been told that a woman has been taken to hospital by air ambulance following a riding accident.

The Buckinghamshire Advertiser reported that the unnamed woman was allegedly participating in a hunt when the incident occurred at around 15:00 GMT on February 17th, off Latimer Road in Chesham.

After an emergency call was made, an air ambulance was scrambled from London to take the injured rider from the spot where she fell, which was not accessible by road, and she was then transferred by land ambulance to hospital.

An eyewitness told the newspaper: "There were two riders who were following the hunt. They fell off in the field behind Milk Hall Barns. The air ambulance landed at the top of the field ... and airlifted one seriously injured rider. A gentleman was also bucked off but he was uninjured."

Earlier this month, it was reported that Linda Harding, 59, had died after her animal bolted and collided with a car.
