Lisa Cowan Obituary, Death Cause, Accident – Lisa Cowan of New York Times, New York, an Equestrian has died in an accidenton April 13, 2023 after suffering from traumatic brain injury, according to an online sharing, ”Another disheartening piece of news for today’s hunting community. Lisa Cowan, another gentleman’s side saddle rider, is now permanently galloping aside. It is tough to lose another member of the hunting community in general; but, it is especially painful to lose a fellow side saddle girl, especially one who was so refined, so sincere, and so attractive.
Our community of side saddle riders is relatively limited. Very few of us have the kind of bravery or insanity that would allow us to intentionally ride without one of our legs. We hold one other in high esteem. We are supportive of one another. Each of us pushes the other further. We covet one another’s unique saddles and vintage riding gear, especially the saddles. Lisa was the epitome of the class and grace that all of us ladies have spent a long time working toward achieving.
Additionally, Lisa was a career woman, and I had long admired the work that she did at the New York Times. Even if her work with horses and newspapers was motivating and more than enough to hang your hat on at the end of the day, she had hobbies, passions, and talents that extended far beyond those two fields. I have no doubt that Paul and all of our other hunting friends who were taken from us much too soon have already filled your flask with whiskey and sent you off on your horse for a thrilling day of hunting. If I pay great attention, I can practically hear the laughter, the hoof pounding, and the blowing of “gone away” .
Someone who was very remarkable has passed away. Lisa Cowan possessed an extraordinary enthusiasm for life as well as a keen sense for all things spectacular. She was witty, bright, and full of life, in addition to being so much more. Her generosity was accompanied by a razor-sharp wit and a hilarious sense of humor. A spirit that is fearless and brave in every respect.
The first few weeks and months of Rachel’s Riding Closet were the beginning of our friendship. A customer ended up becoming a buddy. We had frequent conversations about a wide variety of topics, including hunting, horses, fashion, personal endeavors, and more. Even though I only saw Lisa a few times a year, it seemed as though we had never been apart. It was as if there had been no time at all between our encounters. I will never forget the help and guidance that she gave me over the past several years in order to develop my company and make a new friend. I am grateful to her for both of these things.
I am overcome with sorrow for Lisa’s entire family and circle of friends, and all I can do is pray that the void left by the absence of such a remarkable presence in their life can be filled with an abundance of happy memories that she has bestowed upon us all. I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude toward foxhunting for introducing me to wonderful people like Lisa in my life.
Sharing some of my favorite memories of Lisa, such as the hunting trips we went on with or the fact that she was the best RRC model, brought a smile to my face.”
