Fort Worth, Texas – 19-year-old Jocelyne Campos was tragically killed when the horse she was riding suddenly bolted, throwing her to the ground.  “It just ran off and threw her off,” close family friend Karely Vazquez said.

Campos was an experienced rider and loved riding at a friend’s riding stable near Echo Lake.  She had graduated high school last year and was planning on attending college in the fall.

Campos suffered multiple blunt-force trauma from the fall, and was pronounced dead at John Peter Smith hospital.  There is no word if she was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Friends and family have set up a Youcaring to pay for funeral expenses, and it has received over $6,000 in donations.  “I don’t think she knew how many people cared for her,” Vazquez said.
