Lorna Brooke passed away on Sunday

The possibility of injury or worse is something which jockeys simply cannot allow to creep into their psyche, but the dangers associated with such a hazardous profession are never far from the surface.

Those perils are sadly laid bare once again following the tragic passing of British amateur rider Lorna Brooke, with the 37-year-old suffering significant swelling on her brain before later being placed in an induced coma as a result of a heavy fall in a handicap chase at Taunton earlier this month.
