FORT WORTH (AP) – The funeral is set for a college student who died after falling from a horse.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office says 21-year-old Bailey Gasch, a senior at Tarleton State University, died Aug. 30 at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. She fell while riding in an area about six miles northwest of Santo in rural Palo Pinto County, located about 60 miles west of Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the funeral is set for Saturday in her hometown of Cooper, located about 110 miles northeast of Fort Worth.

The medical examiner says the cause of death was “closed head injury” due to falling from a horse.

An obituary distributed by Delta Funeral Home says Gasch, who was studying animal production, planned to graduate in December.
