The name of the 5-year-old boy who died Sunday of injuries received in a horseback riding accident at Eagles Nest Trail Farm in Mercer County has not yet been officially released. “I think they still had some family to notify,” said Mercer County Deputy Sheriff Carol Matt Swaby. Swaby said the boy reportedly was on a horse being led by his grandfather, Ricky Peyton of Harrodsburg, when the accident occurred. “We got the call from dispatch at about 6:20,” Swaby said.
