After a mishap involving a horse falling on her, a woman spent a good portion of her Christmas in a hospital.

About 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, ground and air ambulances headed to a location near Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club to tend to a woman, about age 60.

“(She) fell or was thrown from her horse … we’re not sure,” EMS spokesman Stuart Brideaux said, adding her injuries were serious but not life-threatening.

She was treated at the scene and flown to a hospital in Calgary.
