Sex And The City author Candace Bushnell has cracked her pelvis after suffering a nasty fall while horse riding.
The writer, whose newspaper column spawned the hit TV show starring Sarah Jessica Parker, was sitting on her mount when she was bucked off and plunged to the floor.
Bushnell was taken to hospital and was unable to walk for several weeks as a result of her injuries.
She tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "I was doing dressage on this muscular horse. It started bucking, and I had to make the choice to come off. I cracked my pelvis, and spent two nights in the hospital. I couldn't walk for a few weeks... but I am still getting back on the horse."
