A cancer-surviving mother of two died after she was thrown from a horse in a beach ride she had organised as part of her bucket list.

Geraldine Jones, 51, of Herefordshire, died on Llangennith Beach near Swansea.

The former hospice worker promised herself she would go horseback riding should she overcome the disease that she was diagnosed with in 2010.

Mrs Jones had been wearing a protective helmet but suffered fatal injuries in the accident last Sunday.

She died in an air ambulance despite attempts to save her life by her riding companion and a passing jogger.

A friend said: ‘Riding on the sand was something Geraldine was really looking forward to.

‘We’ve been told there was a huge smile on her face as she walked down to the beach.’

She leaves a husband, Tim, and sons Olly, 16, and 12-year-old Henry.

An inquest has been opened at Swansea coroner’s court.
