In 2012 Equetech Director Elizabeth Hayman was riding her young horse who napped and reared.
Liz 's quick reactions meant she
leant forward but it was not enough to stop the horse falling backwards.
The quick thinking of the people at the stables meant Liz
was encouraged to lie still and not try to move and the rapid response from the Air Ambulance team meant that Liz
was very quickly taken to hospital so she
could be assessed and treated.
It was not good news as Liz
had broken her
back as well as her
ribs and had received neck injuries too.
The long road to recovery began almost instantly; with timely assistance from the air ambulance Liz
was in good hands and received the care she
needed without delay.
Several anxious months later Liz
is back at work and looking forward to an active life and for this reason the team at Equetech wish to fundraise for the Air Ambulance.
