The man told his rescuers that the horse became spooked when one of the stirrups slipped away, causing him to fall to the ground.

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ CareFlight landed at the scene where its flight doctor and intensive care flight paramedic assessed the man.

He was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital as a precaution.

He was in a stable condition.
