The RACQ CareFlight rescue helicopter has flown to Tara this evening to help a man in his 20s who severed several fingers.

The man sustained the injuries when the horse he was leading reared catching his fingers in the lead rope.

RACQ CareFlight Air Crewman Leigh Ansley said the man was rushed into surgery.

"He was taken to the PA Hospital to operate on his damaged fingers," he said.
