Johannesburg - An 18-year-old girl was injured when the horse she was riding at the Wylebach dairy farm outside Walkerville landed in a ditch, rolled over her and kicked her in the face on Sunday morning, paramedics said.

Advanced life support was administered to stabilise her before she was airlifted to the Union Hospital in Alberton, ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said.

The girl suffered a fractured pelvis, neck and back injuries as well as facial injuries.

    At least she is okay, I hope she gets well soon! I hope the horse is also okay. We choose to climb onto these faithull and hard working creatures. They dont have an ounce of misdeed within and sometimes they can also fall.

      Been drinking again, eh? I'm also glad she's ok, but think of something less idiotic to say.
