The Teenage Equestrian and Her Potential

The teenage equestrian named Brodie Morgan had a small misunderstanding with her mother, Emma Webb. It was reported by New York Post that Emma had advised Brodie to slow down while she rode her horse. Her mother noticed that her daughter was riding her pony too fast.

Her emotions may have been influenced by the recent death of her grandfather and a close friend.

With these events, Broddie’s mental well-being was significantly affected. This had led her to decide to take her own life. In March, she decided to take her life by hanging herself.

According to the article, Emma told 16-year-old Brodie that she will not permit her to go to the weekend show if she did not slow down while riding her horse. However, the teenage equestrian replied to her mother saying that she will not ride her horse anymore.
