New York- Queen of Pop Madonna is taken to a nearby hospital after falling from her horse during a riding session.
“The accident took place when the horse Madonna was riding became startled after paparazzi suddenly jumped out of the woods to take pictures of the singer,” says Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s rep. “Madonna was visiting her friends on Eastern Long Island (particularly photographer friend Steven Klein) when the accident occurred.”
According to Rosenberg, Madonna suffered minor bruises and wounds and was immediately treated. She was released from the hospital soon after.
Madonna, who is also a skilled equestrian, met a riding accident back in 2005, where she broke bones in her hand, collar and three ribs at her estate near London. It was her 47th birthday then, and the horse was a present from her then husband, Guy Ritchie.
