GIRL IN HOSPITAL WITH SUSPECTED BROKEN BACK AFTER SHE AND FRIEND ARE THROWN FROM SPOOKED HORSES BY BIKER TRYING TO RIDE BETWEEN THEM

Betsan Llewellyn Jones, 14, was riding her horse on a rural road along with her friend, who was on her pony, when the unidentified biker tried to get between them.

A young girl ended up in hospital and another was injured after being thrown from their spooked horses when a biker tried to ride through the middle of them.

Betsan Llewellyn Jones, 14, was riding her horse on a rural road along with her friend, who was on her pony, when the unidentified biker tried to get between them.

Betsan’s horse and her friend’s pony were scared and reared up. Betsan managed to cling onto her terrified horse but took a blow to the head when the pony reared up. She fell from her horse and landed in the road and blacked out.

She is still in hospital and may have suffered a compression fracture to her spine, her father said.

Her young friend ended up in a ditch and suffered cuts and bruises to her face and lips.

Betsan’s dad Rod said: “The motorcyclist stopped further along the road, and walked back to where my daughter was lying in the middle of the road.

“Although Betsan was telling her friend that she couldn’t feel her legs, the motorcyclist picked her up which is the worst thing he could have done as she could have been paralysed.

“I’m furious with this motorcyclist as the girls could easily have been killed through his reckless actions.

“He should have kept back and then passed them when it was safe to do so-to try and drive between the horses was just madness.

“Betsan and her friend are experienced riders and the horses aren’t easily spooked.

“He also didn’t leave his details and drove off after the ambulance arrived.”

The incident happened on a road close to Llanelian in Colwyn Bay , yesterday afternoon around 1.45pm. The pair were found by a woman from a nearby farm, who called 999.
