A RIDER was airlifted to hospital after falling from her horse on Dartmoor this morning.

The horsewoman fell from her ride just outside Poundsgate.

But the roughness and remoteness of the terrain meant the Devon Air Amulance had to be despatched to the scene.

The alarm was raised just 11.35am when the casualty took her tumble near Babeny Farm.

She was flown to Plymouth’s Derriford Hospital for treatment to a shoulder injury.
