Fiona Vigar has died in hospital, following a hunting fall last month.
Mrs Vigar, 43, described as a “mainstay of the hunt” by Cattistock joint-master and huntsman Will Bryer, passed away on Sunday (10 February).
She had suffered a head injury when her horse slipped on the road in Loders, Dorset, on 24 January.
Mrs Vigar was a popular and respected former joint-master of the Cattistock and worked for the grain marketing company, Frontier Agriculture.
“It is just a terrific loss for hunting and farming in this area,” said Mr Bryer.
