It is with regret that I have to inform you that Mitsuko Masui from Japan, who was taking part at Euston Park on 11th July, has sadly died at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. Subsequent to this the Norfolk Coroner has opened an inquest which has been adjourned subject to a full inquiry. The inquiry will be held at a date yet to be set, when the cause of death is to be established. Mitsuko Masui represented Japan at the 2006 World Equestrian Games, Aachen Germany when she was in her late 60's and was an inspiration to riders worldwide for competing at such an advanced level at this age.
