The accident happened Saturday night near the 1600 block of Major Avenue, just outside of Riverton. 
 
Authorities say the horse the girl was riding reared up, causing her to fall off. She was taken to Riverton Memorial Hospital, where she was declared dead. The Fremont County Sheriff's Office tells K2 News that adults where present at time of the accident, but could not elaborate on many of the details.
