Madonna is said to be recovering after breaking several bones during a horse-riding accident on Aug.23.

While celebrating her 47th birthday at Ashcombe, her country estate outside London, the diva cracked three ribs and broke her collarbone and hand. She is said to have been riding a new horse she wasn't accustomed to when the accident occurred. Her film director husband, Guy Ritchie, took the Material Girl to the hospital, where she was treated and released later that evening.
