1878 London Riding Accident

Hello all,

I'm wondering what sort of accident can happen to a middle-aged man in 1878 London, preferably somewhere around Hyde Park/Green Park/Rotten Row or Ladies Mile, in which the man will be hurt to the point that he will not be able to use his legs, but will remain living for another seven years. I'm trying to come up with backstory for my novel, and I know I'd like an accident to happen because of the man's daughter and a horse, but I really don't know enough about horses or Victorian medicine to come up with a plausible event.

Thanks!
