CNN Star Injured by Horse ... Of Course, Of Course

10/6/2010 7:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soledad O'Brien is getting ready to undergo a pretty gnarly surgery on her knee -- after she was thrown from a horse in New York on Sunday.

O'Brien tells BV Buzz she was horseback riding with her 2 daughters when her horse "got spooked by another horse and ditched me."

Soledad explained, "I tore absolutely everything in my knee. I am on crutches now and doing physical therapy. I'll have surgery in two weeks when the swelling goes down."

Soledad is so damned pretty. If she ever rode me, I wouldn't throw her off.

Not fun but glad she did not injure herself worse. Hope it heals without any setbacks.

Celebrities, athletes, politicians, models.... Each year we hear about people with serious injuries from falling off a horse. Is it time to put a "no horseplay" clause into every contract?

Wait, then South Park couldn't show Christopher Reeve thriving on baby juice.

Seriously, though, if you made your living through your looks or your limbs, would you not avoid the dangers of horse riding?

But was the horse racist? And if so, will it be featured in "Black in America 3"?

This is another good reason every rider should
wear riding boots, a helmet and quick release
sturrups and gloves. Horse Sense is defined
as mistaking a branch for a snake and then
running away

At first glance I thought that was another picture of Rachel Unitalhorseface next to Soledad. But it was too pretty.

THE HORSE IS ONLY DOING JUSTICE FOR THE ANIMALS:

O'Brien, in a 20-page affidavit, complained about the pooch's "size, slobbering, shedding, drooling, gassiness and odors."

HASN'T MS OBRIEN HAD GAS BEFORE ????
