The Bundaberg RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a seriously injured woman to hospital after she fell from a horse earlier today.

The rescue chopper was sent to a private property, north west of Bundaberg, at 12.40pm.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics initially treated the patient before the rescue helicopter arrived.

It's believed the woman, aged in her 50s, had been mustering cattle, when the horse she was riding was spooked and threw her off.

The patient was treated for suspected spinal injuries and was airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
