We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Georgie Campbell (née Strang), a cherished Old Cranbrookian, who was tragically taken from us on 26 May 2024, following a fall at the Bicton Horse Trials in Devon. Georgie, 37, was a prominent figure in the equestrian community, celebrated for her skill and dedication. She was competing in the CCI4*-S event with her horse, Global Quest, when the accident occurred. Despite immediate medical attention, she could not be saved.

Georgie’s passion for horses was evident throughout her illustrious career, marked by numerous accolades and accomplishments on both national and international stages. Her marriage to fellow event rider Jesse Campbell in 2020 was a testament to her dedication to the sport and her personal life, as the couple shared many successes together.

As an OC, Georgie’s loss is profoundly felt within our community. She embodied the spirit of excellence and perseverance, inspiring many with her achievements and her unwavering love for eventing. Her passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her legacy will endure through the countless lives she touched and the memories she created.

Georgie’s horse, Global Quest, walked away uninjured from the incident. The equestrian world has been united in mourning, with tributes pouring in from fellow riders and institutions. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to her family, friends, and all who were privileged to know her.

In honouring Georgie’s memory, we remember a talented rider, a devoted partner, and a beloved member of the Cranbrook community. Her life, though tragically cut short, was one of remarkable achievements and enduring passion. We mourn her loss deeply and celebrate the impact she made on our lives and the sport she loved.
