A WOMAN has been hospitalised after an incident with a horse in Hayling Island.
Lifeboats from Portsmouth RNLI were scrambled to Hayling seafront earlier today.
The woman had fallen from her horse on a tidal sandbank.
The smaller lifeboat was tasked directly to the shallow beach to treat and secure the injured rider while the Atlantic lifeboat crew was required to assist with securing a helicopter landing zone for secondary paramedic assessment and evaluation.
The woman has been taken to hospital for evaluation.
