Horse-riding in the High Peak area
About three million people in the UK ride horses, and those who ride professionally understand how dangerous horse-riding can be. Most people who ride will tell you they have suffered an injury at some time during their horse-riding career. Injuries vary from bites, which can need hospital treatment, and which usually occur because the person feeding the horse was not holding his/her hand flat while feeding the animal, to spinal injuries sustained after falling from a horse.
There are obviously a wide range of injuries which could occur while horse-riding and if you own your horse, then you understand the risks you take. If, however, you decided to go trekking in the High peak area and hired horses for the day, plus all their tackle, then some accidents could be the responsibility of the owner of the animal.
For example if the girth snaps or comes loose because it was not fastened properly by another person, an you fall and sustain an injury, then you were not responsible for the accident and can claim compensation for your injury from the riding school or owner of the animal.
The horse you have been provided with should have a suitable temperament for a novice rider, if that is what you are. You cannot be expected to control a potentially volatile animal if you are inexperienced.
If you have been injured by a horse, or have had an accident while horse riding then you may well have a case to claim compensation for your injury.
