Nina Carberry is facing an operation on her shoulder after a nasty incident at Downpatrick on Wednesday.
Carberry was replacing her brother Paul on Noel Meade's Another Palm in the Ulster Grand National, but the grey only got as far as the second fence before unseating his pilot.
Speaking on Thursday afternoon, Meade said: "Nina's going for an operation on her shoulder tomorrow. They are going to put a pin in her collarbone. I don't know at this stage how long she will be out for. Thankfully she's not in that much pain now and we'll know a lot more after the operation."
