Georgina Bloomberg, who is 27-years-old, is a professional show jumper. She was hurt Friday night when her saddle came loose and she was tossed from her horse, which is appropriately named Radio City.

Although, she was briefly knocked unconscious, the young Bloomberg was able to walk out of the arena where the event was held on her own, According to her publicist, Kenneth Kraus, Bloomberg didn’t go to the hospital until Saturday morning.

“It wasn’t until the following morning that she had back pain and went to the hospital … I talked to her yesterday. She said her head was fine,” Kraus told the Associated Press on Sunday.

Mayor Bloomberg’s spokesman Stu Loeser also sent e-mailed a statement to the AP.

“The mayor is very concerned, as any father would be,” Loeser said.

In the past, Mayor Bloomberg has encouraged his daughter’s equestrian career. We’ll see if this accident doesn’t encourage the Mayor, who has been so protective of New Yorkers with his bans on smoking and fatty foods, to change his tune about his daughter’s dangerous horseback riding habit.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von FĂĽrstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
