According to the New York Post, Iona Sclater,15, died after she sustained injuries from a horse-riding accident in Cambridgeshire. The British Eventing said in a statement that the rising teen star was “exceptionally talented and dedicated rider” and sent their condolences to Sclater’s family.

Sclater recently won the Under 18 Regional Team Championships in June and scored 33-top-10 results in five seasons while competing under British Eventing.
Days before her tragic death, Sclater posted photos of herself competing with one of her beloved horses, Swatchy, at the Frickley Horse Trials in South Yorkshire.
