Equine insurance: Horse rider dies weeks after fall

Equine insurance policyholders have been told that a keen horse rider has passed away, weeks after sustaining an injury during a fall from a mount.

The Staffordshire Sentinel reported that Lisa Jones, 31, of Higher Woodcroft, Leek, died at home on March 27th, following an incident in which she broke her leg during a ride.

It is thought that Ms Jones developed a lung clot as she recuperated from the non-life threatening injury.

North Staffordshire coroner Ian Smith opened and adjourned an inquest into her death on Thursday March 31st.

Leek County councillor Steve Povey said of Ms Jones, who lived with fiance Peter Moss: "I didn't know Lisa very well, but she and Peter would sometimes attend council meetings.

"Anything like this comes as a shock to the system. It's very sad because it's completely unexpected."

Last month, it was reported that experienced cross-country rider Jo Rugman died following a fall at the VWH Hunt Team Chase at Ampney Down Farm, near Cirencester.
