Madonna Injured While Horseback Riding

4/18/2009 11:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MadonnaMadonna 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.

UPDATE -- Madonna's camp blames the whole incident on a paparazzo. Her rep released a statement that says, "Madonna who was thrown off a horse earlier today has just been released from Southampton Hospital with 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. Madonna will be having further tests and continues to remain under observation by doctors."

Horses are very sensitive. This woman has had more injuries than I have in 40 years of riding, Believe me, I have had spectacular spills off horseback.
Karma comes in many forms. You cannot bend an animal to your will without some recoil. A frightened animal is most dangerous. Madonna is a scarey organism.

I thought she'd be used to riding bareback by now. Oh well, straddle with the saddle!

I just have this eery feeling things won't end well for this chick. Why can't she take her a long vacation and be quiet about it. Madge's list of things to do this coming Monday:

-Do genuine charity and give to a good cause.
-Knock on the door of a struggling mom and have your driver hand her an envelope with a little money in it. Now that would be astounding. You are worth more than 500 million, you won't miss the money.
-Rescue a puppy from the pound, I notice you or your family does not troll around with a dog.

After you do that for the mom, and after the world finds out, say nothing and revel in her joy, your little secret. If other fools come forward to take credit, only you know what the deal is. And if you can't contain yourself, then donate to the children's wing of any hospital USA and announce it to the world. Be a little more spiritual (Madonna, this means since you talk the talk, do the walk). You don't. The list is short, now get to it.

hahahaha That's not bad, actually. Good one! :-D But just because Madonna is a middle-aged, thrice-divorced, currently single, STD-riddled, washed-up, globetrotting whore w/ past drug use and a BF more than half her age *doesn't* mean she deserves a Christopher Reeve. BUT she tried to mutilate poor David's penis, so I say she gets what she deserves. Shoot her. Put her out of her misery. But I sincerely wish her well.

You gotta be kidding me...    

Figures that arrogant, entitled, self centered attention whore & all around nasty skank madonna would blame someone else for her misfortune. It's what she's been doing for years; "it's someone else's fault" is all she says, like a friggin' parrot. Well, I say it's the skank's fault; her horse MAYBE got startled, maybe it didn't. What really matters is, she doesn't know how to ride as well as she should, she fell because she couldn't handle the horse, it's her fault. Stupid dumbass...
