Liz Woodburn is on the road to recovery.
The Made in Mexico star took to her Instagram Stories on March 21 to share images and videos from her recent horseback riding accident, in which she and her horse Geke were injured. 
In one of the clips, Liz, 33, showed the moment the actual incident occurred. As Geke tried to leap across a corner fence, she tripped on the tallest bar and fell, sending the Netflix star head first onto the ground.
"I was unconscious and convulsing for 3-4 minutes," she recalled. "Upon regaining consciousness I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance with Carlos by my side. After many tests over 2 days including CT scans, MRIs & X-RAYs I can say I feel nothing more than blessed and thankful to God for my life."
"I am lucky that my injuries appear to be purely superficial," Liz continued, sharing an image of her face covered in bruises and scrapes. "In the following days I'll be sharing my profound gratefulness for the safety equipment that protected my life."

She also gave an update on Geke, saying that she only suffered "minor physical injuries to her neck and back."
Liz—who welcomed son Charlie with husband Carlos Olson in August 2021—had recently gotten back into equestrian jumping after giving birth. The food blogger created an Instagram account called @lizburnequestrian in 2020, but now uses it so people can follow her postpartum journey. 


In February, Liz shared a video of herself and Geke training. "Practice this week with Geke," she captioned the post. "Slowly but surely we are getting back in shape postpartum, rebuilding confidence and trust! Excited for a big year ahead!"
