    Default Madonna injured in horseback riding accident

    Buzz up!
    Madonna was taken to a New York hospital Saturday after falling from a horse while at the South Hampton, N.Y., home of friend and famed photographer Steven Klein.
    The singer's rep, Liz Rosenberg, confirms Madonna was treated and released after suffering minor injuries and bruises.
    "The accident occurred when the horse Madonna was riding was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer, who was visiting friends on Eastern Long Island over the weekend," Rosenberg said in a statement to Usmagazine.com. "Madonna will be having further tests and will continue to remain under observation by doctors."
    In 2005, Madonna -- a talented equestrian -- cracked three ribs and broke her hand and collar bone in a riding accident at her estate just outside London on her 47th birthday. The horse she was riding was a gift from her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie.
    Seven months after her injuries, the singer, now 50, was photographed by Klein for a 58-page spread in W magazine, where she was pictured alongside six stallions and posed for the cover in her riding gear.
    Later that year, at the 2005 MTV Europe Awards, Madonna spoke publicly about the accident.
    "After I fell off my horse it was amazing to be able to get up and dance," she said, after performing "Hung Up on You" to open the show. "You don't beat singing live...my heart was just pumping out of my chest."

    This really shocks me, the woman should be good at riding things by now.

    Default Madonna fell off a horse. Horse says she scared him.

    Madonna fell off her horse while horseback riding in the Hamptons this afternoon and was taken to a local hospital.

    The Material Mom's injuries were not considered serious, the NY Post is reporting, but she was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

    Madonna was at the home of photographer Steven Klein at the time, according to the paper. She was reportedly wearing full riding gear, including a helmet, when she fell.

    Back in 2005, Madonna fell while riding in London on her birthday -- she suffered several broken bones.

    Madonna took a nasty spill while horseback riding in the Hamptons this afternoon.

    The 50-year-old pop icon, decked out in full riding gear and helmet, was doing jumps at famed photographer Steven Klein's horse farm in Bridgehampton when she fell around 4:20 p.m.

    After the fall, about 10 people, including 22-year-old boy toy Jesus Luz, nervously gathered around her before emergency workers arrived.

    She was carried into an ambulance on a backboard and rushed to Southampton Hospital with Klein by her side.

    A police source said the injuries did not appear serious and she was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

    The Material Mom's day began when she and her sons Rocco, 8, and David, 3, took a helicopter from Manhattan and landed at East Hampton airport around 2p.m.

    She then went straight to Klein's compound for what should have been a relaxing day in the sun.

    Some of her luggage was taken to actress and good friend's Gwyneth Paltrow nearby home.

    This isn't the Pop Queen's first riding mishap.

    In 2005, she broke several bones -- including three cracked ribs, a broken collarbone and a broken hand -- when she lost her balance riding on her London complex on her 47th birthday.

    Last fall, when her divorce to Guy Ritchie was announced, reports speculated her marriage ended after he coldly reacted to that slip.

    "If you can pinpoint an exact event or incident which spelled the death knell for them as a couple, Madonna's horse-riding accident was it," a close family friend told London's Sun.

    The accident comes as she's preparing a summer tour in Europe, which kicks off July 4th in London.

    I don't blame the horse.

    Senior citizens shouldn't be riding horses anyway.

    How did Guy react 'coldly' to her first accident? Ha, fucking ridiculous that THAT was the thing that killed their relationship.

    The important thing is that the horse is okay, right?

    If she doesn't eat some more food she'll end up with brittle bones and then I dread to think what will happen if she keeps on traumatising horses like this.

    Meh, this always happens when she needs some ps before a tour.

    P.S. Please don't tell me she is touring again.

    Nah, her cheekbones just slipped down to where her jowls used to be.
