Rider killed in horse fall suffered “accidental death”

  • A Yorkshire woman suffered fractured ribs and internal bleeding which lead to her death when she fell from a horse, an inquest was told.

    Georgia Hill, 31, of Burley-in-Wharfdale was riding at a livery stables in Guisley where she kept her horse on 16 October last year when she lost her stirrup and fell heavily.

    Miss Hill was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary but died that night.

    She had not been wearing a hat at the time of the accident but coroner David Hinchliff said as Miss Hill did not suffer a head injury that could be ruled out as having contributed to her death.

    He recorded a verdict of accidental death at the inquest on 22 April.

    “My conclusion has to be that this was the most tragic of accidents,” he added.
