(Newser) – Madonna was thrown from a horse in the Hamptons after camera-wielding paparazzi jumped from the bushes, spooking the animal, reports the New York Daily News. The longtime equestrian was rushed to the nearest hospital for treatment of her bruises and minor injuries. This is the second tumble for Madge, who famously broke three ribs, her hand, and her collarbone in a 2005 riding accident.
