Following the tragic death of Gaye Harwood in a road accident on Monday morning, her sister, racehorse trainer Amanda Perrett, has issued the following statement:
“It is with great sadness that I inform you that my dearest, beautiful, kind and much loved sister Gaye tragically died in a road accident near Pulborough on Monday morning. Our family, her partner Ben and gorgeous daughter Willow are devastated at our loss.
“She worked tirelessly in designing, building and running Coombelands Equestrian, we are all so proud of what she has achieved.
“On Sunday, she re opened the cross country course in great condition for the year.
“The best way you can support us as a family to go forward is to come and use her wonderful facilities, help us to continue developing them in her memory and enjoy riding, training and competing your horses here in the years to come.
“Bookings for the facilities will be in the usual way via the website, for the time being you can use my email firstname.lastname@example.org and office number 01798873011.”
