PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who got bucked off a horse while on a guided tour is suing the horse tour company for $137,000.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/Lz6mqM ) Thomas Williams claims he was injured last summer at Ocean Trails Riding Stables near Pacific City. The business provides hour-long tours for $55.

According to the suit, a guide's horse bit Williams' horse during a tour, causing Williams' horse to buck and throw him to the ground.

Williams said a guide instructed him to remount the horse and return to the stable. As Williams climbed back on, the horse bucked again and Williams fell.

Williams said he injured a finger, leg and knee in the fall and aggravated a pre-existing knee injury.

Attorneys for both sides did not return calls or email messages on Friday.
