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."

The next time you people give a wonder as to...

"why is there so much violence?"
"why is there so much hate?"
"why is the World getting so bad?"
"what's with all the mass killings?"
"why is crime on the rise?"
"how can someone hit-and-run?"
"how can someone kill a child/children?"
"why would someone be so abusive to animals?"

... Just Look In The Mirror

The majority of you here are full of unwarranted HATE, ANGER, and VIOLENCE

Horses have a keen sense of hearing, and can smell what is around them. If she were any kind of Horsewoman, she should have been "actively" riding and paying attention to the horse's body language; that way, the horse, if it did "spook" wold not have caught her off-guard. She must think horseriding qualifies her to be a Gentlewoman. It does not. I was taught as a child "if [you] fall off a horse, it's your own fault". Shame on her for casting blame on papparazzi, even if one WAS "lurking"...that's her life, she (read: 'her people') should just deal with it and shut up.

Hey Madonna, remember all that filthy sleazy trash you fed millions of young people on the last 25 years?

What goes around, comes around. Your bad karma has arrived. You fooled the world, but now everyone seriously
HATES YOU all the comments everywhere and you will see you have been unmasked.

Go away Madonna, leave the world alone, and stop the lesbian filth, the pedophilia trash too!

Madonna should be in jail for what she has gotten away with. I pray she never gets custody of any of the children!

Hey madonna, next time you ride a horse, make sure the horse is laying on his back and fully engorged. Just bounce up and down on it.
