Jasmyn, 14, died in May 2014 when she was hit by a speeding driver on Normanton Hill, Intake, saving the life of her friend Tia Tucker in the process by pushing her out of the way.

Dozens of riders and equestrian enthusiasts are set to descend on High Moore Farm in Cinder Lane for the event.

Speeding driver Naseeb Ellahi was jailed for seven-and-a-half years following the crash.

A special crossing – Jazzy's Crossing – was set up at the spot as a permanent memorial to Jasmyn.
