    I thought that she was grooming him in his stall, and he spooked and kicked out, getting her in the head.

    That's what I heard months ago when it happened??

    Nope, coming from a close friend of hers "She was riding Boomer bareback in an arena and tried to jump out of the arena. It is a 4'/5' panel fence. The horse didn't make it (he has marks on his front legs) and flipped, landing on Jessica and breaking her neck and crushing her skull. She died instantly. I've been talking to some of her close friends & this is what they've told me"

    She was a gorgeous kid with a lot of talent and passion for horses and she passed away doing what she loved most.

    From what I heard, her parents have kept her horse and will not be selling him.

    This was truley horrible....we miss you

    Its so stupid that people are fighting over how it happened. She's gone and no matter how she left is going to make her come back, so everyone needs to stop fighting about it. Im glad this fourm isnt

    Awww. I have never been to this part of the forum, so I hadn't seen this post. I watched almost all of her videos and tears rolled down my face. I was so sad. RIP Jessica. Boomer will be with you again someday!

    It's very sad, but there are so many completely different accounts, I have no idea what to believe. It was very sad, I can't deny that, but I just want to know the truth about what happened. I've heard about 20 different versions of the story so far, but none of them have real basis . . . Very sad that she died, but you still wonder how it could have been prevented. Like why was she allowed to jump 4.5 ft fences alone with no one around?? But we won't get into that . ..
    I just wish that there was a reliable news article or something about it, so that I could know what really happened, not just a note off of someones youtube.

    I agree with hals on knowing wehter its true or not because I've heard that she was in his stall and he kicked her head and I've heard she was jumping a 5ft unknockable fence(the arena fence) and she was honestly I don't know what to believe but all in all...i feel really bad 4 her family and friends and especially boomer. That is really sad!

    I've heard 3 different stories on her death, but how she died isn't really important. It's sad to hear of such a great rider die, especially one that young!!! I say she looked 15 at the oldest in that video.

    I'm glad to hear that her parents aren't selling Boomer...I know something happened and I was killed at the barn I definitely wouldn't want my parents to sell Sonny...of it they had to to at least sell him to a friend that I know he'd be in good hands with.

    That video made tears come to my eyes :(
