Madonna 'Better' After Riding Accident

Madonna is on the mend following her horse-riding accident over the weekend, and recuperating at her friend Gwyneth Paltrow's home.

The singer was admitted to Southampton Hospital, in New York, on Saturday with minor injuries and bruises after the fall at celebrity photographer Steven Klein's Bridgehampton farm.

She was discharged on Saturday night and spent most of Sunday resting at Paltrow's house in nearby Amagansett, reports the New York Daily News.

However, the Material Girl already appears to be getting back to full health after posing briefly for waiting photographers outside Paltrow's home and insisting she was feeling "better."

Madonna's spokesperson Liz Rosenberg has blamed paparazzo Thomas Hinton for Madonna's fall, accusing the photographer of jumping out of the bushes and startling the horse in his attempt to get a picture of the pop star.

Hinton denies the claim, insisting he was on a public road when the incident took place.

Rosenberg added in a statement: "Madonna will be having further tests and continues to remain under observation by doctors."

The star previously broke three ribs, a hand and her collar bone in an equestrian accident in 2005.
