Sunday July 2nd 1400hrs. Rescue Dunsdale Farm Guisborough.
We were alerted to help a 34 year old lady from Hayfield in the Midlands who had fallen from her horse during a riding event in a remote area of farmland a mile or so from the nearest road.
Seventeen members of the Team responded to the callout and reached the incident site after a short walk. The Team doctor and ambulance personnel treated the lady at the scene. She was then carried on a specialised mountain rescue stretcher around 800m to the waiting ambulance.
The incident lasted around 90 minutes
