A RIDER was rescued from the Clent Hills after been thrown from her horse, hitting her head and being dragged along for some distance.

The incident happened at the beauty spot at 10.30am today (Sunday).

The woman was treated by West Midlands Ambulance Service’s paramedics before the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) used a six-wheel drive vehicle to reach her and take her back to a waiting ambulance.


A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival it quickly became evident it was going to be difficult to access the patient who had reportedly been thrown from a horse.


“Initially paramedics had to walk a short distance to access and assess the patient, who had suffered head and shoulder injuries in the incident.”


After getting her back to the ambulance, she was taken to Russell’s Hall Hospital for further assessment.
