With around three million people regularly riding in the UK, equestrian related accidents are becoming more common. Statistics show that, after road accidents, paramedics attend more accidents involving horses than any other.
Due to the nature of horse riding, accidents that occur can result in severe injuries, which can often cause long-term debilitation. If you have suffered an injury following an accident relating to equestrianism, Farleys Solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.

Types of Horse Riding Accidents
Due to the active nature of horse riding and the fact that it involves large, unpredictable animals, the sport does carry a significant element of risk. Furthermore, injuries can be sustained not only by horse riders themselves but also those involved in the care of horses and even by spectators at equestrian events.
Horse riding injuries can range from small sprains and bruises to very serious injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
These can result in a person being incapacitated and can lead to them taking significant periods of time of work. Moreover, injuries of this nature can drastically diminish a person’s quality of life.
