PASADENA >> A woman suffered major injuries Friday when she was thrown from a horse along the Arroyo Seco trail in Pasadena, officials said.
The mishap took place about 11 a.m. in the lower Arroyo, near Arroyo Boulevard and Bellefontaine Street, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.
The victim, a woman in her 50s, suffered serious head trauma in the fall, Derderian said.
Good Samaritans nearby called for help and tended to the woman as paramedics used a cell phone signal to pinpoint her exact location in the Arroyo, Derderian said.
The rider was taken to a hospital in critical condition, she said. An update on her condition was not available Sunday.
Pasadena Humane Society officials were summoned to the scene to take care of the woman’s horse, which was not injured, Derderian said.
