Iain Jardine's Work-Rider Natasha Galpin Suffers Fatal Injury

Natasha Galpin, a work-rider for trainer Iain Jardine, has sadly died following a fall on the gallops in Carrutherstown, Scotland.

Galpin, 22, was riding an unnamed horse on a Tuesday morning exercise, before it broke down as a result of suffering a ruptured artery.

"Sadly, our horse suffered guttural pouch mycosis during work. He was given all the necessary care and treatment required and the owners were immediately informed. 

"Our main priority throughout has been Natasha and the rest of our staff, who are distraught at the loss of a colleague and friend but have been extremely supportive of each other.

"She was an experienced and valued full-time member of our yard. She worked alongside her boyfriend Olyn. Our thoughts and prayers are with her parents and sisters at this very sad time.

BHA chief executive Nick Rust was also quick to react to this upsetting news.

(Credit: Racing Post) Rust said: "I know I speak for everyone at the BHA when I say we are truly shocked and devastated about this tragic news. 

"While such incidents are extremely rare, there is an element of risk any time a rider sits on any horse and as such we must never take for granted the bravery and commitment of our workforce.

"Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of Natasha Galpin and the yard of Iain Jardine. We will work with the authorities to provide support to the yard at this difficult time," he finished.
