Two women sustained non-life threatening injuries after they were thrown from horses Monday in Henning, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.

The call came in at 7:10 p.m. for a 38-year-old Underwood woman and a 56-year-old Battle Lake woman who were thrown off horses on Grace Etta Road. One of the horses became spooked and then spooked the other horses, causing the women to be thrown to the ground.

Emergency crews responded and took the women to Lake Region Hospital.
