Lisa Vanderpump’s husband, Ken Todd, said she may never ride a horse again after being thrown off one over the weekend and hospitalized with a broken leg.

“I think maybe that was her last ride,” Todd, 76, told TMZ Tuesday. “I wouldn’t let her ride again.”
Todd emphasized that the horse was previously “gentle,” “perfect” and “amazing” before noting that even the most experienced equestrians don’t know when an animal will get spooked.
“I was there,” he told the site. “When I saw her thrown off, I couldn’t believe it. I was in shock. I ran over there, and she was just on the floor, and she knew that she’d broken her leg straightaway.”
Todd revealed that Vanderpump, 61, broke her leg in three places and will most likely require plates and screws with a recovery time of about eight to 10 weeks. He said she’ll also need to go through the physical therapy process, among other healing methods.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star was horseback riding at The Paddock in Los Angeles Sunday when the equine suddenly reared up and threw her off, TMZ previously reported.
An eyewitness said Vanderpump flew over the horse’s head and landed on her back.
Todd confirmed Tuesday that a trainer called an ambulance as soon as she saw the rough landing.
As Bravo fans know, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star has always had a passion for all things animals — especially horses and dogs. She once said in a “Vanderpump Rules” confessional that she tried to make it to the horse stables at least three times a week.
Vanderpump has yet to comment on the accident.
Get well soon, Lisa.
