A woman’s leg was smashed against a concrete barrier in Aintree after two riderless horses collided with her while riding a horse Grand National this year.
The terrifying moment came after Tala Salaat and Galvin cleared their riders at the first fence, running the course as loose horses for some distance before veering off the track.
In the footage caught on camera, the couple could not slow themselves down as they sped off course and slidAnd the next in the grass, it bumps into a racing rider at speed.
The spectators watching the incident had given warnings to those in the path of the two loose horses, but after they tripped on the concrete, there was little time for the woman to move to safety.
The moment was filmed by a bystander, Mukadim Mujaković, who revealed that he stopped filming to give the woman medical attention before the police took over.
He recited a prayer and Galvin knocked out their riders but continued to run the race at speed
A competitor was injured after two horses collided with her as they veered off the track
An ambulance was called, and was with the injured spectator just over 10 minutes after the accident.
Talk to Mujakovic the sun He said the events made him feel “shaken himself”.
“In the distance, I saw two knights fall. I saw the two horses coming towards me. They crashed into the woman.”
It was so shocking, I was totally shaken up and stopped fapping and went to help.
The policeman came and gave her first aid. She was in pain. She could not stand on her feet.
I heard them on the radio of an ambulance. I left after ten minutes and heard sirens coming. It was unreal.
I’d be surprised if her leg wasn’t broken. I hope that is not the case.
After flying through the grass, both horses slid onto the hard concrete off the track

Prayer’s injuries were confirmed in a statement from the Jockey Club which also released the news of Hale Sixteen’s death.
Unfortunately, while racing in the Grand National, Hill Sixteen sustained an unrecoverable injury. Our sincere sympathy relates.”
“A prayer was said and the Cape Gentleman was evaluated by our skilled veterinary staff and proceeded to the horse ambulance for further evaluation in the stables.”
His trainer, Willie Mullen, said that the horse had fractured his eye socket and that he had “a few cuts and bruises, but nothing more”.
Gordon Elliott coach Galvin received medical attention, the coach’s spokesperson shared, having already undergone x-rays.
North West Ambulance Services also confirmed the race rider’s treatment, saying in a statement: ‘We can confirm the patient was injured and crushed against a concrete barrier by a stray horse. She was taken to the hospital with a lower leg injury.”
Saturday’s race – won by Lucinda Russell’s trainer Korach Rambler – suffered a near-unprecedented 14-minute delay after protesters from the animal rights group Animal Rising tried to storm Aintree.
The race had previously been delayed by more than 14 minutes due to animal rights protests
More than 26 were caught on site with more than 100 more just off the racetrack
Two protesters attempted to pin themselves to one of the two-storey fences, and police involvement saw 26 arrested on the course, and nearly 100 more away from the site.
Sandy Thompson, who trained the collapsing Hill Sixteen team, blamed the protesters and the race delay for his horse’s death, saying the wait made him so “hyperblooded” that he became melancholic.
Thompson said, “They (the activists) don’t have bloody proof of what they’re doing. He just didn’t take off at the first fence; he got hyperemesis gravidarum from his pregnancy.”
Unfortunately, it’s a statistic we all try to avoid. I’ve been here twice and haven’t had a problem. I know how ignorant these people are. They are only causing more problems than they will ever solve.
