Horse Riding Accidents
There are a number of ways that a rider can be injured in a horse riding accident. They can by physically kicked or hurt by the horse, injured by falling from the horse itself or even by simply riding the horse incorrectly due to failure of training or supervision.
The environment in which you ride, whether this is a training school or holiday camp, needs to be safe for both the horse and their rider.
The right equipment must be provided at all times, including helmets, gloves and body protection. The riding gear must be suited to the rider, and even the horse needs to be of a suitable size.
Horse riding injuries can range from small sprains and bruises to very serious injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
Horse Riding Accidents on the Road

- There are more than 3 million horse riders in the UK

- 16 horse riders are killed each year on average by road traffic accidents
- The majority of horse riding accidents occur on minor roads
Unfortunately horses can be spooked by cars passing too close or too fast on the road. Drivers who don’t abide to the highway code can often cause unnecessary horse riding accidents which can result in serious injury. The effect of such an accident can be devastating to a rider who may have suffered a personal injury but also may have to suffer the trauma caused by injury to or death of a beloved horse.
