Thomas Hinton tells the New York Daily News that he snapped Madge on her horse around 3:50 in the afternoon and then left the area. He headed back to property where Madonna was staying when he received a tip there had been an accident.

"I arrived more than 10 minutes after she fell and I was shooting from the street," Hinton said.

Madonna's spokesperson Liz Rosenberg had claimed that the singer's horse was spooked when a paparazzi jumped out of the bushes.

After the mishap, the 50-year-old mother of three was taken to the hospital and checked out, but was released a few hours later.
