In a devastating incident, a British equestrian rider, Georgie Campbell, lost her life after falling from her horse during a competition on Sunday.

Medical professionals were immediately on the scene after her fall at fence 5b, but, tragically, their efforts to save her were in vain. British Eventing, the national governing body for the sport in the UK, confirmed this heartbreaking news in a statement.
