New Zealand rider dies at Somerford Park

My daughter goes to Somerford Park and Karen and I used to take her there when she was a teenager. Tragic news and Doodle wonders why we aren't keen on her jumping her horse. Stick to dressage, its not a 100% safe but its a darn sight safer than cross country.

RIP. A sad reminder of the risks in the games we play, but we play them knowing full well the risks and they make life much more exciting. Guess this sort of thing is why the insurance that covers me while hanging on with one hand and wrestling the foresail with the other as waves crash over me on the bow of a racing yacht somewhere offshore in a force 7 draws the line at Polo and Eventing.
