Iona Sclater, of Great Britain, was a rising star in the equestrian world.
A rising teenage star in the equestrian world has died after falling from her horse while practicing at home in Great Britain.
Iona Sclater, 15, was described as an "exceptionally talented and dedicated" rider by British Eventing, the sport's governing body that country. She fell Sunday morning at her family's house in Cambridgeshire.
"Our thoughts are with Iona's friends and family, her dad Charles, mum Hetty and sisters Lara and Alicia, at this very difficult time," British Eventing said in a statement.
In five seasons of competing with British Eventing, Sclater scored 33 top 10 results. She won this year's June competition at the Under 18 Regional Team Championships.
A few days ago, the teen posted a photo of herself competing with a horse named Swatchy at the Frickley Park Horse Trials in South Yorkshire.
"Find me someone who looks at me the way Swatchy does," she wrote.
