The actress revealed she was on a 40-mile horseback ride in Malibu this past weekend when she got off her horse and tripped on a rock, which cause her ankle to turn in a obscure angle.
“At around 16 miles I got off my horse to walk down a steep and very rocky trail to give her a break. At the bottom of the trail I tripped on a rock and my left foot took the pounding. My ankle and foot dislocated off to the left at a 90 degree angle to my leg. I pushed it back into place. It was so gross but I had to do it,” she shared via Instagram.

“Thankfully this happened by a road and a nice stranger called 911. And thankfully I was with my friends who helped with my horse and my spirits. The ambulance took me to the hospital and the xrays showed 3 broken bones in my ankle. Had surgery late that night and now have rods, pins, and screws in my ankle. No weight bearing on my foot for 6 weeks,” she wrote.
The 60-year-old said that she will still go to work this week and try to heal quickly.
“I am not a happy camper when things slow me down like this. And there is always a lesson to learn. Not sure what that lesson is yet but will have the time to contemplate. #staypositive,” Katherine ended the post.
She shared photos of herself in the hospital, along with her wrapped ankle, and videos of her and her friends riding horses.
