A New York State equestrian was tragically killed Wednesday when she was killed by her horse during a show this week.

Becca Weissbard, 22, was thrown from her horse and the animal fell on top of her during a show in Saugerties on Wednesday.

The crowd, including Weissbard's mother, watched in horror as the young gold medalist was crushed to death.

Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra Weissbard's mother was the first person to run to her daughter's aid, reports the Daily Freeman

Paramedics responded to the scene but were unable to revive Weissbard.

The Manorville equestrian was on her second run through a 10-hurdle course when the horse struck a cross pole.

The Hampton's Classic Horse Show issued the following statement on its website on Thursday:

"The Long Island equestrian community is heartbroken that Becca Weissbard died in a riding accident yesterday. Our deepest condolences to her parents, Eric and Lynn, her family, and her many friends."

Officials with Horse Shows in the Sun said this is the first death in the event's history.
