A woman who died following a horseback riding accident in Ladner last night (July 3) has been identified as 43-year-old Roseanne Guerin of Ladner.
Guerin and her 18-year-old daughter had been riding horses around 8 p.m. in the 3,600-block of 34th Street when the mother’s horse was spooked by a dog and began galloping away, throwing Guerin from the horse.
The daughter’s horse followed the first one and while attempting to jump a ditch the teenager was thrown off.
Witnesses immediately began CPR on Guerin until rescue workers arrived to transport her by air ambulance to Vancouver General Hospital. She later succumbed to head injuries.
The teen was taken to Delta Hospital where she was treated for scrapes to her face and bruises to her left leg.
A farm tractor rescued one of the horses that had crashed through a fence and become stuck in a ditch.
