A Ballinger High School student was critically injured in a horse riding accident Tuesday.

Ashley Renee Virden, 17 of Ballinger, was injured while riding Tuesday afternoon at her family's home south of the community of Bethel, in rural southeast Runnels County.  A 9-1-1 call from Lynn Virden, Ashley's father, summoned Ballinger Memorial Hospital EMS and the Runnels County Sheriff's Department to the location.  According to Lynn, the horse began to buck and threw Ashley from the saddle.  Ashley landed on the ground face down.  The horse then stepped on Ashley's head, resulting in a large laceration to the back of her head and severe head trauma.  Shannon's Air Med 1 Air Ambulance landed at the scene and transported Ashley to Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, where she remains in critical condition in Shannon's Intensive Care Unit on full life support.

Ashley is an incoming senior at Ballinger High School and has been actively involved in barrel racing for many years.  Ashley is the daughter of Lynn Virden and the granddaughter of Robert and Bonnie Virden of Ballinger.  Ashley's family sends thanks for the many well wishes and prayers. 

The Ballinger Community Center remains open this (Wednesday) afternoon for Ashley's fellow Ballinger High School students and any others that wish to gather.  Counselors will be available for those in need.
