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."

I give the devil HER dues. She really busted it when she came on the scene way back when. But now she's doing everyhing she can to keep her name in the news. She now is just like Joan Crawford was. Adopting not so fortunates to make heself re-recognized was not for the childs sake, it's the hollywood thing these days to adopt little poor black kids to make herself popular again. She doesn't take time with her own child. She has a special nanny to up doing everything including wipping her nose.
Yes ,she busted it back then, now all she can do is slide off a horse frome time to time and bust something else..I had respect for her back then.. All I have for her now is pity.

man its those douchebag paparazzis fault that she fell in the first place. She should sue them to nuke them for all their worth because it was there fault. Its about time that a parazzi eventually caused an injury this being a minor one though to a celebrity. Just sue their asses and put a huge restraining order on them so they wont bother you again

Even the horses don't enjoy Madonna. She probably doesn't know how to ride properly. Digs them spurs in horsie.

Animals can sense evil. Too bad she didn't break her neck.

The doctors worked on her for more than an hour before realizing they were working on the horse. Or, when Madonna fell off the horse the vote was six to five to put HER down.

Wasn't Catherine the Great crushed to death trying to have sex with a horse. Clearly Madonna was a little more careful.

I'm not a Madonna fan, but she deserves the right to have a quiet horseback ride without photographers "jumping out of the bushes" and spooking her horse! The paparazzi are liable for her injuries just as if I had deliberately jumped out in front of a car and made the driver swerve into a telephone pole.

How much more proof is this egomaniac going to need before she realizes she will never be a competent rider?

The paparazzi and celebs feed off one another and neither would survive without the other. So hold your outrage at the press. Too bad Mag was hurt, but it was her own resonsibility. If she can't ride, or its too much horse, then don't ride.
Never liked her as a quality person anyway, so I won't waste any more contemplation on her foibles.
