You had a fall rom horse on your back and have pain and spasm on back.
Although you don't have any visible external injury but to rule out any internal injury,consult a physician who may examine you for any internal injury and may prescribe appropriate treatment.
You may need pain killers and muscle relaxants.
Hope this answers your question.
