WOMAN IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER HORSE-RIDING ACCIDENT 

A 71-year-old Wilhoit woman is in serious condition after being thrown from her horse on a ranch trail ride southeast of Wilhoit on Saturday. Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by Southern Yavapai Fire to assist with a distress call from a woman who said her  friend was injured, but that she did not know where exactly they were located. After several attempts to contact the friend, YCSO dispatch operators were able to get the coordinates.  

YCSO deputies arrived to find the female victim with what was believed to be an internal head injury and possible back injury. There are no public roads in that area, only “2 track” ranch trails that made it inaccessible to fire trucks and ambulance. Deputies contacted Native Air, who were able to land nearby and fly the patient to Honor Health Deer Valley Hospital in Phoenix. As of midday Saturday it was reported the victim was in the ICU.
