Eventing owner and Tetton Hall horse trials organiser Frances Kinsey has died, British Eventing has reported.

Based in Cheshire, Frances Kinsey and her husband, Dick, ran the popular Tetton Hall Horse Trials for 23 years until they made the decision in early 201o to retire from running the event.

The couple had earlier retired from farming.

Frances Kinsey said in 2007: “We have always held the event for owners and riders with emphasis on rider appeal, friendliness, and having fun. We could not have done it without all the support and commitment from everyone involved.”

The late Caroline Pratt was based at their livery yard in Middlewich, and rode several of the Kinsey owned horses to great success.  Pratt was fatally injured at Burghley in 2004 when Primitive Streak, owned by the Kinseys, suffered a rotational fall and landed on his rider at a water jump.
