TORONTO — Jason Priestley says he's on the mend after suffering a concussion in a fall from a horse.

Priestley was shooting a scene for his Toronto-shot upcoming TV series, "The Code,'' when the accident happened Monday.

Producers say he was taken to hospital as a precaution and discharged the same day.

The former "Beverly Hills, 90210'' star adds on Twitter that he was advised to take a few days off but looks forward to getting back to work.

Production on "The Code'' is expected to resume next week. Priestley plays a former pro hockey player who uses his ability to read people in his new gig as a crime-solving private investigator.

"The Code'' is set to premiere on Global next spring.

Priestley tweeted about his fall on Wednesday.

"I got my bell rung pretty good,'' he tweeted.

"Because I have a history of concussions, they took me to see a neurologist for an assessment.... But I am definitely on the mend and looking forward to getting back to work with all the wonderful people on The Code.''

Priestley fractured his spine and suffered a concussion in a near-fatal car crash at the Kentucky Speedway in 2002.
