A memorial service for event rider Eleanor Brennan will be held at 11am on Friday 14 December at St Mary’s Church, Painswick in Gloucestershire.

The 21-year-old died after a fall at an event in Florida last month.

Donations given in her memory will be reserved for a scholarship in her name for rising equestrians in England and America — with the intention of working with British Eventing as well as the US organisations.

At present, cheques should be made out to “St Anne’s Parish”, labelled “Eleanor Brennan” and sent to The Treasurer, St Anne’s Parish, PO Box 337, Scottsville, VA 24590, USA.
