Georgie Campbell, British eventing rider and wife of New Zealand Olympian Jesse Campbell, has died following a fall from her horse Global Quest at Bicton International Horse Trials.

Georgie and Global Quest fell on cross country at Fence 5B during the CCI4* class, which was subsequently abandoned, on Sunday.
