Cavalia rider injured during Burbank show

A female rider in the Cavalia Odysseo show suffered minor injuries after being dragged by her horse during the Wednesday night’s performance, Burbank Fire Department officials said.

Deputy Fire Marshal Jorge Martinez said a performer fell off her horse mid-show. While attempting to climb back on, her foot caught in the stirrup, and the horse dragged her on the ground for a short distance.

The performer suffered a concussion and minor head injuries, said Martinez, and was transported by ambulance to a hospital.
