Andrea Bocelli was airlifted to the hospital after he fell off a horse and hit his head, but the singer wants everyone to know it was no big deal.

The legendary tenor was horseback riding Thursday in Italy when he took the nasty tumble.  He was immediately airlifted to a nearby hospital and treated.

Bochelli, who has been blind since age 12, lives a famously active lifestyle including skiing and windsurfing.  He reportedly learned to ride horses when he was seven-years-old.

Shortly after the accident Bocelli posted a message (in Italian) letting everyone know he was doing fine, “Dear friends, I would like to reassure you and tell you that I feel great: it was just a trivial fall from a horse. I embrace you.”
