Nipperess suffered multiple injuries in a fall at Warwick Farm when the horse she was riding was hit head-on by a riderless horse.

On the day of the accident, surgeons operated on a displaced vertebra which relieved pressure on her spine.

Doctors also discovered on Thursday she had a fracture in her right shoulder in addition to her other injuries but she was in good spirits.
