Yeah I agree, but do you think they ever wonder what truly happened?

I agree. It would have been horrible to watch. They say that it's the best guess they/the coroners have because of the way she was positioned, the state they found Boomer in, and the broken jump. They also said that the images she took as well as the video helped them piece together the events of that day.

It's really sad.

here is a link to the letter on another forum... along with some of her videos that are mentioned in the letter... here you go: How Jessica forsyth really died (Letter from her parents) - Horse Forums (HGS)

Jessica inspired me also to do jumping! I wish I knew her, it would've been awesome! Do you guys know how she was jumping horse jumps by herself. Well she also inspired me to do that too! I pray for her family every day!

R.I.P Jessica, gone but not forgotten.

A horse is like a best friend. They`re always there to nuzzle you and make your life a better place.

And thats why you should never jump alone.
I know accidents can happen in flatwork as well, but there is much more risk in jumping alone no matter how safe your horse may be.

I was always taught to never ride alone when jumping or in the dark.

Sad to see such a good young rider to pass away though.
