The 43-year-old Canadian woman who died in a riding accident in British Columbia on Wednesday evening has been named as Roseann Guerin, of Ladner.

Guerin, a mother of three, was riding with her daughter, 18-year-old Megan Rogers, through rural Ladner when it is believed a dog spooked her horse. The startled horse ran off and Guerin was unseated.

Her daughter’s horse followed the spooked animal, but ended up in a muddy ditch, which the horse was unable to clear.

Efforts to revive Guerin, including CPR, proved unsuccessful. Guerin suffered severe head injuries in the fall.

She was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital but died late on Wednesday night.

Rogers was also taken to hospital for treatment to scrapes and bruising to her leg.

Firefighters were called to pull her horse from the ditch.

Canada.com reported that Kara Lingam, stable manager of Dogwood Stables, said the family had boarded their horses at her stables for the past few years.

She said Roseann Guerin had only recently bought the horse she was riding. The horse was young and considered “green.”

    It doesn’t actually say so in the article, but looking at the accompanying photo and the fact she suffered serious head injuries, would I be correct in assuming she wasn’t wearing a helmet?

    Too many people rely on the “yes, but it’ll never happen to me” attitude.

    In another artical it says “It was believed they were not wearing helmets.”
