Phillips Uninjured In Horse Fall Horror

British royal ZARA PHILLIPS escaped injury when she was thrown from her horse at an equestrian event this weekend (16-17Oct10) - her high-tech inflatable jacket cushioned her fall.
The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II was competing in a dressage contest in Enschede, Holland when her mount, High Kingdom, slipped at a water jump.
Phillips toppled from the horse as horrified onlookers watched - but her specially-designed inflatable airbag jacket was activated by a ripcord attached to the saddle, and Phillips escaped unscathed.
In 2008, she broke her collar bone after falling from her horse at a competition in France.
