How doyou determine who is responsible for paying medical expenses in a personal injury situation?

A somewhat experienced rider rides the same horse 2 -3 times each week. In exchange for riding the horse the rider cleans the stable each time she rides. On a fateful day while riding along a public road the horse is spooked by dogs and uncontrolled, runs through a barbed wire fence, throwing the rider. The horse is injured by the barbed wire fence and the rider is injured by impact on the ground. After the accident the rider learns that the horse is an ex-racehorse and is afraid of dogs. Who is responsible for the rider’s medical expenses and who is responsible for the horse’s vet bills?
