In an interview with Gold Coast Magazine, Weir shared, “My family isn’t exactly sure where this passion comes from, but I’ve been riding since I was 3 years old and can’t imagine life without it.” She went on to explain that she traveled to rural Sydney 2-3 times a week for training and participated in competitions across New South Wales and broader Australia every other weekend.

On April 2, Sienna Weir suffered a severe accident while horse riding at the Windsor Polo Grounds, near Sydney, as reported by the Daily Mail. Her horse fell, causing her to sustain serious injuries.

She was immediately rushed to the hospital in a critical condition and had remained on life support for the past several weeks. In what would be her last social media post, the 23-year-old model shared a picture on Instagram in April. Since her passing, this post has become a place for loved ones and followers to leave sorrowful messages, sharing their collective grief over her untimely demise.
