Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, they seem to be related to the fall from your horse.
It is possible that there is mild bleeding in the sinuses or a mild sinus infection, where pain or headache may occur on bending forwards.

However, there is very little chance that you have suffered any serious internal brain injury, based on your symptoms.

I expect you to get better in a few days. If symptoms persist or worsen, then, you may get a CT scan of brain and sinus done.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
