Former British Olympic dressage rider Jane Gregory has died at the age of 51 from a suspected heart attack.

Gregory first rode for Britain in 1994 and went on to team up with Cupido at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

And the Wiltshire-based rider returned to Olympic action three years ago in Hong Kong when she rode Lucky Star.

"This is tragic news. Her enthusiasm, energy, dedication and positive outlook on life was infectious," said British Dressage chief Jennie Loriston-Clarke.

"Jane was an inspiration to many in the sport and was so proud every time she competed for her country.

"She will be dearly missed by all in British dressage and everyone who had the privilege to meet her or watch her perform."

The two-time Olympian, who was born in Bromley, is survived by her husband Aram, the Hong Kong dressage rider with whom she set up a yard in 2001 before marrying in 2006 after more than 20 years together.
