A WOMAN crushed by her daughter's pony during the Boxing Day meet of the North Cornwall Hunt at Camelford is said to have suffered no serious injuries.

District nurse Rebecca Clayton, from Tregeare, near Egloskerry, was standing by her daughter Gussie's pony Honeybell when the mount toppled back on to her.

Paramedics treated her at the scene and she was taken to hospital but soon released.

"I'm pleased to say that she was not detained at the hospital and is home and well," said hunt secretary Rosemary Meeson.

    Shouldn't be teaching her young impressionable daughter to engage in the barbaric medieval sport of hunting then should she? Serves her right.

    The mother is wrong to teach her child the barbaric act of hunting. Serves her right.
