I am sorry about your daughter.

if she was thrown off of her horse with enough force to fracture her skull, she could have fractured other joints and bones in her body

she needs xrays of her bones and pelvis and sacrum to check for fractures in other parts of her body

has she had xrays in her other bones to look for fractures where she hurts?

I'm sure they did a full trauma evaluation.She also might be full of fluids form the hospital. I would give it some time to see
