Madonna suffers minor injuries in fall from horse


suffered minor injuries and bruises Saturday while horseback riding in New York's Hamptons.

On Saturday evening, Madonna's spokeswoman,

Liz Rosenberg

said that the entertainer, 50, had already been released from Southampton Hospital after she was thrown from a horse that was startled by paparazzi.

Rosenberg said the photographers had jumped out of the bushes to photograph Madonna, who was visiting friends on Eastern Long Island for the weekend. Further medical tests are to be conducted, and doctors will continue to observe Madonna, Rosenberg said.

It was the second tumble from a horse the singer has taken in less than four years. In 2005, she cracked three ribs and broke her collarbone and her hand in a horse-riding accident at her country estate outside London.
