Emergency crews responded Thursday night to the Rodeo of the Ozarks in Springdale, after a man was thrown from his horse while competing in the rodeo events.

A man was bucked off his horse during the bareback riding competition and landed on his neck. An ambulance transported the man to the hospital after placing him on a backboard as a precaution, rodeo workers said.

The victim sustained minor, non-life-threatening injuries, according to emergency responders.
