Woman airlifted after horse fall in Grandchester

A woman was airlifted from a Grandchester property with possible spinal injuries after falling from her horse yesterday afternoon.

The RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the Grandchester region just after 4pm this afternoon.

The rider, in her 40s, was injured after her horse bucked, pitching her backwards and onto the metal top rail of a nearby fence.

The patient was treated by Queensland Ambulance at the local school oval, before being airlifted by the Toowoomba RACQ CareFlight Rescue crew to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition.

It's the second horse fall injury this month, and comes after five riders were airlifted by the rescue helicopter in May.
