A horseback rider on Friday was transported by California Highway Patrol helicopter to Queen of the Valley Medical Center after she fell off a horse and rolled down a hill at Skyline Park, according to CalFire.
The woman, who is in her 60s, fell at 12:42 p.m. after her horse was spooked on at steep trail, CalFire Capt. Warren Parrish said. The other ride who was with her said she lost consciousness and was disoriented, Parrish said.
The firefighters hiked about a mile to the grassy area where the woman was, guided by a CHP helicopter that had spotted the woman, Parrish explained.
The woman was hoisted into the helicopter and airlifted out as a precaution, Parrish said.
