A woman has reportedly fallen from a horse and injured her back while riding on a rural property south of Willits prompting first responders to converge on the scene.

Scanner traffic began around 12:16 p.m. indicating the incident occurred near the intersection of Ridgewood Ranch Road and Maple Lane just south of the Seabiscuit Heritage Foundation, a historic horse facility.

The incident was characterized as a “medical Charlie response” which means the injuries could be potentially life-threatening.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
