Woman found dead in NSW paddock

A woman has been found dead near a saddled horse in a paddock on the NSW Central Coast.

Police say the 41-year-old's death on a Girvan property is not considered suspicious.

The alarm was raised when the woman failed to arrive at work on Monday, sparking a search involving police rescue, the dog squad and the Westpac rescue helicopter.

"A horse, complete with saddle, was also located in the paddock," police said.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.
