#RideForOlivia The Power of Social Media

Just three days after 17-year-old rising equestrian star Olivia Inglis was crushed to death by her beloved horse Coriolanus in a freak riding accident the hashtag #RideForOlivia created in her memory has generated 3.2 million shares worldwide.

The tragic death of Ms Inglis, a passionate equestrian who dreamed of competing at the Olympics, has united the equestrian community in countries including the UK, US, Italy Hong Kong and France.

A social media campaign encouraging people to share the #RideForOlivia hashtag along with photos of themselves with their horse has generated the staggering response around the world.

The messages posted with the photographs and the hashtag included heartfelt wishes for Olivia’s family and wistful tributes such as BrittBurgunder’s post ‘Life is beautiful & life is meant to be lived doing what we love most. #rideforolivia’.

As thousands more continue to add their touching posts and messages for the late teenager, Olivia’s parents, prominent thoroughbred auctioneers Arthur and Charlotte Inglis, are preparing to lay their daughter to rest.
