Bullsbrook woman fighting for life after falling from horse

A WOMAN who fell off her horse in Bullsbrook is fighting for life in hospital.

St John Ambulance responded to a call this morning that a woman in her 40s had fallen from her horse and was taken priority 1 to St John of God Midland Public Hospital.

She was then transferred to Royal Perth Hospital.

She was riding with a friend on the Bullsbrook Bridle Trail, just off Chidlow Road.

According to the friend, the victim’s horse got spooked by something in the bush and threw the woman off.

The victim, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, hit her head on the dry, hard ground.

“She tried to stand up a couple of times,” Sam Unstead told 7 News.

“I said to her to lay still. I hopped off my horse and came to her.

“She had blood coming from her ear.”

She remains in RPH in a critical but stable condition.
