Several injured when horses bolt during NY event

JEFFERSON (AP) -- Authorities say several people are recovering from injuries suffered when two horses bolted during a sled-pulling competition in a rural upstate New York town.
 
Officials in the Schoharie County town of Jefferson say Sunday afternoon's event was an old-fashioned pony pull competition being held at Buck's North Road Stable.
 
Town Supervisor Daniel Singletary tells the Daily Gazette of Schenectady that one of the horses was pulling a 5,000-pound load when it kicked a member of its driving team in the chest.
 
Singletary says both horses broke loose from their sled and ran through a tent of onlookers, injuring about six people. Deputies say they were taken to Fox Memorial Hospital in Oneonta with bruises, lacerations and other injuries.
