Lifelong rider and keen South Wold follower Joli King died on Saturday, 13 August, aged 54, following head injuries sustained from a fall out hacking.

Although Joli was wearing a hat at the time of the accident on 4 August, she never regained consciousness.

Joli took up eventing aged 50 and jumped a double clear inside the time at the Badminton Grassroots Championships (90cm) earlier this year (pictured right).

She leaves a husband, Michael, and children, Ben and Dilly.
