Rotational Fall at Scone CIC2* New South Wales Claims Life of Horse and RiderOlivia Inglis, 17, Australian Eventer

The sport of eventing is mourning the loss of Olivia Inglis, 17, daughter of Arthur and Charlotte. Olivia died following a rotational fall of her horse in competition in Scone, NSW, Australia on March 6, 2016.

Olivia’s 11 year old Thoroughbred gelding, Coriolanus, suffered injuries and following advice from Scone Equine Hospital, Coriolanus was euthanized after x-rays revealed he was suffering from a displaced fracture in his neck. He too was a talented competitor and loved family member and will be sadly missed.

Arthur and Charlotte Inglis commented: “We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and sympathy from family and friends throughout the school, equestrian and thoroughbred communities. We are so proud of Olivia and the beautiful young woman she was in every way. We are blessed to have had the opportunity to share our passion for horses with our children. This has led us on a great journey where we have been able to spend countless happy moments and special family times. So much to celebrate and a life so joyous and well lived.”

Olivia was a member of a well-known Australian Thorougbred racing family and had competed at the one-star level on two horses – Coriolanus and Vinchenzo.
