What was the name of the horse that trampled Emily Davison at Epsom?  Emily Wilding Davison was an influential British suffragette who, on June 4, 1913, suffered fatal injuries after being knocked down by a horse during the running of the Derby at Epsom. The horse in question was Anmer, owned by King George V, the paternal grandfather of Queen Elizabeth II, and ridden by Herbert ‘Bertie’ Jones.

Exactly what Davison intended is unclear, but footage of the incident shows her ducking under the running rail as the field rounded Tattenham Corner and reaching up, as if to grasp the bridle of the Royal runner. The identity of the horse may, or may not, have been a coincidence and she may have simply been trying to attach a suffragist flag or ribbon. In any event, Davison was flattened, suffering a fractured skull, while Anmer turned a complete somersault on Jones, knocking him unconscious.

Davison, 41, was admitted to Epsom Cottage Hospital in a ‘very serious condition’, but died from here injuries four days later without regaining consciousness. The ‘Daily Sketch’ described Davison as the ‘First Martyr for Votes for Women’, but whether or not she intended to sacrifice herself for the suffragist cause has been hotly debated ever since. The presence of an expensive return train ticket in her handbag suggests not, but her earlier attempts at martyrdom in prison suggest that suicide may not have been entirely out of the question.
