“Paramedics at the scene said that the man was trying to get the horse into the horse box when it all of a sudden became very agitated and kicked the man almost full in the face.”

He suffered multiple broken bones in his face and was put on to advanced life support.

He was airlifted to hospital for further medical attention.
