A woman has been airlifted to hospital after being knocked unconscious by a horse north-west of Sydney.
The 25-year old was leading a horse from its paddock to a stable at Glenorie near Dural, when the accident happened, CareFlight said.
She suffered fractures to her face and was knocked unconscious.
CareFlight’s Rapid Response helicopter was called by NSW Ambulance at 1.50pm.
It landed 10 minutes later nearby and was given a police escort to the patient.
The woman needed to be intubated and was put into an induced coma, CareFlight said.
She was taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious condition.
