Rest in Peace Jessica, a gifted and talented rider :(

Jessica was a 14 year old girl who lived and breathed horses. She had a wonderful horse called Boomer and they had an amazing bond.

She taught him all kind of tricks like rearing and bowing and kisses and she was so good she even jumped without a bridle or saddle.

She made a youtube account which was full of videos of her and boomer.


When she grew up her dream was to be a vet when she grew up and take her riding even further,

But life was cruel and took Jessica away from this earth forever. She was riding boomer and tried to jump a 4 foot fence that she had done many times before when boomer fell and crushed Jessicas skull, killing her instantly. Her mother sent out a search party when Jessica didn't come home and they found her lying dead next to boomer.

I didn't know Jessica but her story made me so sad and I know this amazing horse rider will never be forgotten

Rest in Peace Jessica

I know, I used to watch her vids all the time. She had such a great bond with her horse, Boomer. :( It's a shame she passed away. I'm sure Boomer misses her dearly. Ugh, whatta shame.

Ride more, worry less.

Oh, that is so sad. R.I.P Jessica. There was another accident in Victoria where a 14 year-old-girl got crushed by her horse, but she is still alive.

This happened months ago. There was a huge fight over on another forum about who was at fault and whether or not what she did was right. Something I thought was besides the point.

It's sad to have such a young and talented rider off like that.

I hate it how people will argue on something that happened like this, a horrible accident that took a talented riders life, argue over what she did.
Whether she did something that she should have or not, it won't make things any easier for her family.

RIP Jessica!!

There is no joy in Jessicas death but thank god it was quick and all over very quickly.



I hate to imagine what it would have been like if she was lying there dying or suffering :(
