Have you been hurt whilst horse riding?
Although horse-riding can be a dangerous hobby if not carried out correctly, it is still extremely popular. Whilst many adults enjoy horse riding, it is often a hobby which is taken up by people when they are young.
By learning about how to behave appropriately around a horse, people can lessen the likelihood of an accident but they can’t prevent all accidents from occurring. Unfortunately, even experienced riders can experience accidents from time to time so beginners and amateur riders may be even more at risk.
When horse riding, it isn’t always the number of accidents you have that matters. What is generally of most concern is the severity of the incident. Often, people can fall off and, due to their safety equipment, they will only experience a few bumps and bruises.
However, if they suffer a bad fall or the horse falls as well, they may be crushed or suffer broken bones. Whilst many people wear spine protectors in order to try and prevent back injuries from occurring, this will only work if they have been constructed properly.
As with any sport, if you rely on safety equipment to protect you and that they safety equipment fails, you could be extremely vulnerable to injury. As safety equipment is designed to offer a certain level of protection, if your equipment fails or is defective, you could be hurt as a result. If you’re harmed because of such faulty equipment, you may find that the manufacturer can be held liable for your injuries.
