A young horse rider is in hospital after falling from the animal with it possibly rolling over him.

A St Johns spokesperson said the rider was flown to hospital from the Malvern Show at the Sheffield Showgrounds this afternoon. He was in a moderate to serious condition in Christchurch hospital.

It was not totally clear what happened but both the horse and the rider went down and then the horse may have rolled over the child, the spokesperson said.
