Eamonn Kilbride, 46, was performing the high-energy horse-riding-like moves when he suddenly collapsed moments later and died. He was at an office Christmas party for the Thwaites brewery, where he worked as an IT manager.
Kilbride's wife, Julie, was with him at the Whitehall Country Club when he complained of chest plains. She tried to revive him with CPR. He was late pronounced dead on arrival at Royal Blackburn Hospital late Saturday night.
The coroner later told his family that Kilbride suffered from acute heart failure.
Kilbride is survived by his wife, and three children: Laurajade, Jack and Conor.
