Bootle woman escapes injury after being kicked by horse

AN EXPERIENCED horse rider who was airlifted to hospital after being kicked by a horse escaped with only bruises.

Clare North, in her 40s, who lives near Bootle, was kicked in the leg by the horse yesterday at Cumbrian Heavy Horses, in Chappels Farm, near Millom.

The incident occured in the yard during early afternoon, and Ms North was taken away by the ambulance at about 1.45pm.

She is now at home recovering after tests at Furness General Hospital revealed there was no serious damage.

Annie Rose, the owner of Heavy Horses, said: “She’s a very experienced horse rider but occasionally these things will happen.

“She was laughing and in good spirits when taken away by the air ambulance.

“She owns her own horses and is a senior member of staff so it was a bit of a surprirse.”
