On Monday afternoon the on-duty crew for the TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to Tapapa, located in the Waikato region.
A 50-year-old female had fallen from her horse and sustained serious ankle injuries.
The woman was cared for by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being flown to Waikato Hospital for further medical care.
