Horse riding is an exciting and popular sport and many people pay for lessons, excursions and trekking. However horse riding is also a hazardous sport and if an accident occurs it can result in very serious injuries.

Horse riding injuries are often simply down to the horse behaving in an unpredictable manner, but they can also be caused by the negligence of an instructor, riding school or equipment company. If this is the case then a successful personal injury compensation claim may be able to be brought against them.

For example, riding schools and equipment companies must ensure that the riding helmet meets adequate safety standards and is the correct fit for the rider. If not, a blow to the head could be worsened due to the ill-fitting helmet.

Riding schools must also ensure that the riding equipment including the saddle and reins - is well maintained and is not damaged in any way. If not, the rider could lose control of the horse and be badly hurt.

The rider should also be matched correctly to a horse that fits their height and ability. If a rider is inexperienced and is given a horse that is hard to control or unpredictable then an accident is more likely to happen.

Injuries that can be sustained from a horse riding accident and which may result in a compensation claim can include:

  • Sprains and broken bones
  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Fatal Injuries
