Police have said that a 9 year old girl has died in the hospital after a horse-riding accident at about 11:25 am on Saturday. Paramedics were called to a farm in Miserden, near Stroud, Gloucestershire and she was airlifted to the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester.
Although the girl was believed to have been out riding with The Cotswold Hunt when the incident had occurred, a spokesman for the police has said the death is not being treated as suspicious.
“A nine-year-old girl was taking part in an organised event when she was involved in an incident involving a horse. The girl suffered serious injuries and was taken to Gloucestershire Royal hospital by air ambulance where she sadly died. The coroner and the child’s family have been informed. Police are not treating the death as suspicious.’
South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust attended the scene with Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
