A woman who was kicked by a horse had to be flown to hospital with serious head injuries.

Emergency services were called to a farm on State Highway 5 near Fitzgerald Glade to attend to the local woman at 8.30pm yesterday.

Neighbours helped the 60-year-old until an ambulance arrived. Fire staff also attended and set up a landing zone for the Rotorua-based BayTrust Rescue Helicopter.

Aircrew used night vision goggles to airlift the woman to Waikato Hospital.
