A horse died on the field at Bridgehampton Polo on Saturday, collapsing while the rider was still on its back, according to the New York Post.
The paper said a spectator told them the horse "suddenly dropped," though the rider was able to jump off before the animal hit the ground.
A representative for Bridgehampton Polo told the Post that all the animals are well cared for, and added that injuries do happen. A heart attack likely felled the horse in this case.
