Madonna has been ordered to avoid horse-riding while she promotes her upcoming album CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR, but the pop superstar is keen to get back in the saddle as soon as possible.

The MATERIAL GIRL's manager is worried the singer will injure herself again, following the incident on her 47th birthday in August (05) when she was thrown from a horse and broke numerous bones.

She tells British magazine Attitude, "I took (the sling) off two days ago. My left arm is flapping around like a chicken wing and I don't have any strength right now.

"I wasn't even meant to be riding that horse. It was a gift for my birthday, and somebody said try it. So I did, and I was literally on it for a minute and got thrown off.

"I want to get back on a horse, but my manager has said not to until I've done all the promo stuff for the album."
